Via The Wrap:

Prince changed the face of music during his life, and the legendary performer continues to break new ground even after death.

Over a month after passing away, Prince has set a Billboard charts record for placing 19 albums in the Top 200 in a single week. The number means Prince controlled just under 10 percent of the chart.Forbes reported that the previous record was held by The Beatles, who had 13 albums on the charts.

Some of the albums by the Purple One that are hot sellers right now include “The Very Best of Prince,” the “Purple Rain” soundtrack, “Ultimate,” “1999,” and “Sign ‘O’ The Times.”

That’s just the stuff that is already out there. Prince was so prolific that we may be treated to new material of his for years to come. Tupac has put out, what, four thousand or so albums since he died? Imagine what Prince’s vault is like.

There is no new news about the rumor that he may have had a will after all, but that mess isn’t likely to be cleared up any time soon.

Until then let’s all cross our fingers that the 2016 music legend death news will calm down for a while. Like until 2020.
