Neo-soul artist, D’Angelo, is back and smoother than ever! The singer has just released his long time coming full length album Black Messiah. At a listening party yesterday evening in NY, D’Angelo explained the title of the album:
” It’s about people rising up in Ferguson and in Egypt and in Occupy Wall Street and in every place where a community has had enough and decides to make change happen. It’s not about praising one charismatic leader but celebrating thousands of them. Not every song on this album is politically charged (though many are), but calling this album Black Messiah creates a landscape where these songs can live to the fullest. Black Messiah is not one man. It’s a feeling that, collectively, we are all that leader.”
I believe that in light of everything that’s been going on in the world lately it’s quite fitting & serves as something positive for the community.
But on a lighter note, one of the singles off the album, “Sugah Daddy” has got that funky sound we haven’t heard in awhile!
