R&B/Soul: Frank Ocean – “Voodoo”

Frank Ocean let this really dope gem of a song loose on his tumbler page recently & I’ve been rewinding this joint back several times over. I believe this “Voodoo” jawn is maybe a snippet or teaser because the song is relatively short. Definitely a nice joint right here…


D’Angelo Performs First Live Show in 11 Years (Video)

The soulful voice behind classic albums Brown Sugar and Voodoo seems to be finally back after an 11 year hiatus. Even though D’Angelo’s absence had much more to do with personal troubles than lack of musical inspiration,it looks like the good brother is back on the right track. He was spotted at Filadelfiakyrkan in Stockholm, Sweden performing new joints along with classic joints like “Chicken Grease” and “Shit, Damn, Motherfucker” to a lively crowd, with the energy and passion that we grown accustomed to from D’Angelo. I also see the homie Kendra Foster doing her thing signing background!! No word on an album just yet, but things are looking up. We need you D!!!

R&B: D’Angelo – “Black Hole Sun” (Cover)

D’Angelo has been missing for a while, and even though this is not a piece of his newest material, the releasing of any material from the soul singer is a good sign for his fans (including myself) who wants a return to the Brown Sugar and Voodoo days. According to ?uestlove this is an cover of SoundGarden’s classic “Black Hole Sun” recorded 8 years ago, but a part of warming the public up to D’Angelo as the new album is “97%” complete. We hear this all the time from artists who go on these long layoffs (see Lauryn Hill) and never get around to actually putting any material out that the people so desperately want to hear. However since ?uestlove is involved, this situation may provide a better outcome. Besides that, this is a pretty dope cover of a classic tune. Enjoy!
