What’s the highest Billboard 200 position Prince’s “Purple Rain” reached?
Dig, if you will, a picture… In addition to hitting #1 on the overall Billboard 200 chart when the song was first released in 1984 – where it spent a whopping 24 weeks – , it went to #2 after Prince’s death in 2016. Along with taking the top spot on the Billboard 100 charts, it also stayed at the top of the Billboard R&B charts. Source: Billboard
