BET held back not a single ounce of shade following Billboard Music Awards’ Prince tribute. Playing off what seemed to be mass disappointment, the TV network shared a teaser for their upcoming award show with the message, “Yeah, we saw that. Don’t worry. We got you.” In case you missed it: And it seems they came through on […]

The world will never get over the deaths of music icons like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, David Bowie, and now Prince, but we’ll continue to honor them the best way we know how – tributes.

    Both Kendrick Lamar and D’Angelo are having a stellar year so far; K. Dot’s latest release, To Pimp a Butterfly, is the album everyone is talking about—from hip-hop aficionados waxing about its lyrical and thematic heft, to cultural critics offering in-depth analysis of everything from the album’s subject matter to its rebellious, revolutionary […]

After dropping his critically lauded Black Messiah, D’Angelo, was the featured guest on a J.K.

Legendary R&B/soul artist D’Angelo surprised the world on December 15 with the release of his third studio album Black Messiah, along with his newfound band The Vanguard. The Internet and the music community at large blew up over the digital release, but many wondered whether or not we’d get a physical vinyl release.      Our prayers were answered a […]


A key factor of D’Angelo’s greatness lies in the astral otherness of his voice. His concerts are one of the few reminders that it’s not disembodied. It’s soothing, but it’s also an all-encompassing connector. Through him, the time, regional and sonic barriers that separates the Princes, the Sly & The Family Stones, the Funkadelics and […]

  The very soulful D’Angelo just dropped an album after a 14 year hiatus. Die hard fans couldn’t manage to put it down, while new fans were filled with intrigue.   The “Brown Sugar” singer sat down with Red Bull Music Academy Radio and discussed the new project, and much more.   Take a listen […]
