New Prince song released yesterday.Fans of pre-1999/Purple Rain will appreciate the quirky funk and experimentation of sound.~Daryl~
The original version of this song made famous by Chaka Khan.
This is what today’s Hip-Hop has become? The once proud voice of the inner-city rendered silent by self-centered concerns of corporate America and its increasingly silly suburban influence. MLK’s family is upset at his image and memory being abused in this way-They have every right!
Like Russell Simmons, who thought it was right to depict Harriet Tubman in a sex tape=DISRESPECTFUL, SAD…AND BEYOND FATHOMABLE!!!~Daryl~
The influence of Prince is more than obvious throughout this “throwback” track from D’Angelo’s long-awaited follow-up to Voodoo(2000). The new project entitled “Black Messiah” finds him giving his friend a serious run for the money. This song, and the rest of “Black Messiah” is head and shoulders above the mostly bland body of today’s increasingly monotonous and timid tunes passing as legitimate R&B. D’Angelo has returned with FIRE…May the HEART&SOUL of his welcome return to the limelight forever burn~Daryl~
