Ten great D'angelo songs to start with.
There are few acts in R&B music that have had the type of impact D'Angelo has had over his 24 year career. Despite the fact that he's only released three albums, each one has had a huge impact on music at the time.
Brown Sugar blended the worlds of R&B, soul, and funk to help usher in the movement of "neo-soul." Voodoo refined the movement through studio sessions at Electric Lady with the Soulquarians. More recently, Black Messiah commented on social equality while delivering a stellar album that was worth the fourteen year wait.
While he isn't prolific, he is potent when he's around. There isn't another man like the "R&B Jesus," and so we've decided to highlight D'Angelo's ten essential tracks in this week's segment.
