D’Angelo had the ladies going crazy with his thuggish looks, sculpted physique and sweet voice. It didn’t hurt that he was naked in his provocative “Untitled/How Does It Feel?” video either. But the “Brown Sugar” singer suddenly disappeared from the music scene. D’Angelo popped up on the radar after he was busted for soliciting a prostitute but it’s been years since he put out an album. All of that changed over the holiday season when out of nowhere, D’Angelo released “Black Messiah,” the first album in 14 years. All of that waiting must’ve paid off because the surprise album was well received and music critics gave it thumbs up across the board.
