After dominating pop charts in the ‘80s, Prince returned to his R&B roots with Diamonds and Pearls, an album that features some of his most undeniably strong singles. The horsepower under the hood is his backing band, The New Power Generation, who bring maximalist urban-jazz opulence (i.e. digital sitar and wind chimes) and glossy, funk-infused grooves. When it connects—as it does on the epic title track or brilliantly raunchy “Cream” and “Gett Off”—it results in some of the catchiest work of his career. His foray into hip-hop, “Jughead”; the shimmering swing of “Strollin’”; and the politically charged “Money Don’t Matter 2 Night” demonstrate Prince’s passion for continuing to push boundaries.
