After leaving Warner Brothers behind in 1993 no one dear think Prince would not only top the album charts but also achieve the highest tour earnings and receive nominations for the Music Halls of Fame on both sides of the Atlantic ever again let alone all in the same year. His album, Musicology, became the 25th highest selling CD on Billboards charts in 2004. In 2004 Prince opened up the Grammy’s with his most important performance of his post Warner’s life, but the awards ceremony of 2005 will see Prince up in five categories: Best R&B Album (for Musicology), Best R&B Song (Call My Name), Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance (Musicology), Best R&B Vocal Performance Male (Call My Name) and Best Pop Male Performance (Cinnamon Girl). The award ceremony will be held in Los Angles on 13 February and televised by CBS.
