D’Angelo presents ‘Black Messiah’

Against the backdrop of organized protests in American cities to fight police brutality and racial profiling, soul and R&B singer D’Angelo released his highly anticipated album, Black Messiah“Today’s music tends to lead with the beat, forgetting that message is key to R&B. Most people listen to songs hoping they’ll resonate with their mood. At a time when emotions for black people were hard to explain and voices felt unheard, Black Messiah delivered a message.” A youth reporter and music fan reviews the album and talks about its cultural context, on Richmond Pulse.
