New album available midnight on iTunes.
D’Angelo pulled a “Beyonce.”
I smell a Best R&B Album nomination next year.
I see it winning Best R&B Album.
The album is incredible, and it’s amazing it actually matches expectations. All tracks are killer, and I love how he just keeps ging through so, so many different styles of r&b and funk throughout and yet it all feel cohesive and like a statement. He still got it. If there’s still any justice, he’ll get some Grammy noms for this.Also, this in some ways felt his most Prince-like album, so I’m obviously in love with this.
Fantastic album. All the year’s best lists need an update, this at N°1, what a surprise.
Been listening to this all day at work, and it’s amazing. Definitely lived up to my expectations and then some. Just wow.
GRAMMY bait. It’s definitely a great album. Happy to see it at #1 on iTunes.
96 on Metacritic, after fourteen critic reviews. This is a HUGE hit. We will definitely be seeing this next year.
Black Messiah is expected to sell 95-100K in its first week.
Just listened to it. Not half-bad.
