Mixed Reviews: Examining the Impact of Lovesexy

After much anticipation, Prince released his tenth album, Lovesexy, on May 10, 1988. However, in its place, fans expected The Black Album — which hadn’t arrived until years later. The themes presented in Lovesexy focus on the connection between spirituality and sexuality — ”God is love. God loves you.” Perhaps his most personal album to date, Lovesexy was Prince’s version of gospel. His naked body on the cover — an angelic representation of a spiritual rebirth of sorts — caused retailers to limit distribution. With so much going on in the world, including the AIDS scare, Prince brought us into his own world on this one-track album.
