If you haven’t heard, the internet is on fire with news of a potential D’angelo album dropping soon – very soon.
Above is a 16 second trailer that Okayplayer just posted to their website for Black Messiah. Underneath the trailer is a countdown clock that reads “December 15.” In addition, 9th Wonder posted a picture to Instagram of a brand new D’angelo album – the physical CD – in hand, and posters in SoHo are popping up on social media. We know we shouldn’t expect anything at all from D’angelo, but screw all that. We need this.
In case you don’t know, Okayplayer is Questlove’s website. Questlove was a core producer on D’angelo’s classic second album Voodoo from 2000, and he’s been the mouthpiece for any updates on D’angelo’s new material. Never has it been this official, though. A trailer and a countdown? Pictures of a real CD? Yeah, we’re buying it.
