Because of MJ. He got overshadowed severely by how immensely popular MJ was.
If Michael wasn't a thing or lived in a different era, I think Prince would have been called the king of pop, back then.

I think there were other factors, Prince's way out there image turned people off IMO. Plus I don't think a lot of parents wanted their children listening to Prince back in the 80's. Would you let your 6 year old listen to "Darling Nikki"? 

Yeah there was that too.
