There had been talks of D’Angelo coming back with an album for about 4 or 5 years now. We thought we’d get some new music when he performed at the BET Awards back in 2012. He didn’t disappoint, either! We got a funky performance of a song we couldn’t understand but grooved to it because it was that funky and it just made you move.
In January of 2013, ?uestlove from The Roots said that D’Angelo’s album was 99% done, but we still had no new music from D. Now there is proof that after 14 years, there’s a new D’Angelo project forthcoming entitled Black Messiah, featuring his band, The Vanguard.
Take a listen to the super funky, groovy, instrumentation of “Sugah Daddy” — which is actually the song he performed at the 2012 BET Awards. Don’t forget to take the poll after you take a listen. There’s also a Black Messiah teaser up top, as well.
