Is D’Angelo about to drop his fourth album?
If so… Mother god.
Kevin Liles management company, to whom D’Angelo is signed, hinted that such an earth-shattering event may be on the horizon. “Ready for another D’Angelo album?” the company wrote on its Instagram account. “Might be coming sooner than you think! On the way.”
D’Angelo, who pop critic Robert Christgau once dubbed “R&B Jesus,” unexpectedly released Black Messiah at the tail end 2014, shortly after a jury declined to indict Michael Brown shooter Darren Wilson. It had been fourteen years since his previous album, and most fans have expected a similar drought — until KWL Management shared this fabulous news.
