Prince's music has flooded the charts as fans paid tribute to the late music icon.

Following his sudden death last Thursday at the age of 57, the star's work is dominating the official albums chart - holding every position in the top five.

The all-Prince top five includes The Very Best Of, followed by 2006's Ultimate, his Grammy Award-winning movie soundtrack Purple Rain, The Hits/The B-Sides, and Sign O' The Times.

If compilation album The Very Best Of remains at the top of the chart by Friday, it will become the musician's sixth number one album in the UK, according to figures from the Official Charts Company.
