Even as I typed this post, an early D’Angelo classic was playing on a radio station’s late night soul show.
In the mid-late 1990s, my focus was hip hop music but I made time and space for R&B. I saw D’Angelo as another R&B singer but I would learn he had a unique style. His treatment of Smokey Robinson’s Cruisin’ was particularly special.
Regardless of which album you prefer or consider his best work, D'Angelo has classic music in his catalog.
