In Control

After making his first demo at the age of 17, Prince signed a deal with Warner Bros., who gave him substantial creative control. He released his debut, For You, in 1978. Prince produced, arranged, composed and played all 27 instruments on the album and wrote all songs except for the hit "Soft and Wet," which had lyrics co-written by early collaborator Chris Moon.
