Apparently, fallen R&B star D’Angelo needs as much help as he can get to restart his music career:

D’Angelo’s long anticipated album received a title and a surprising collaboration with ‘the purple one’ this week — Prince ! According to a statement from his manager, D’Angelo will sit down with Prince to record a song for his comeback album, now titled “James River,” soon.

“James River,” D’Angelo’s first studio effort in nearly 9 years, is also sporting a collaboration with Gnarls Barkley’s Cee-Lo Green. Green joins Raphael Saadiq, Mark Ronson, and Roy Hargrove, who have already contributed to D’Angelo’s forthcoming album.

In addition to “James River,” D’Angelo is plotting a return to the stage with a summer tour. D’Angelo’s last album, “Vodoo” featuring the single “Untitled (How Does It Feel),” reached no.1 on several charts.

This ought to be interesting, but he better not bring that fat frame back on the scene. He better get down with Jenny Craig and a trainer if he wants to be taken seriously. Butterball.

    first, i want to say that i am excited about D’Angelo’s return to the studio and the stage. he is undoubtedly one our greatest talents and it will be a breath of fresh air to have him back.

    having said that, in regard to all the shots about his weight gain (i know there will be plenty more comments on that issues as this post grows), that is a part of why he cut his Voodoo tour short and his shocking change in appearance.

    according to an interview i read back in 2003 i believe, ?uestlove (who was touring with D’Angelo then) stated that he (D’Angelo) began feeling like his audience wasn’t feeling him on an artistic level, that they didn’t respect the artform and that they were only interested on when he would take his shirt off, not in what he sang about. ?uest said that D would be depressed and eventually became burned out; finally cutting the tour short and going on hiatus from the industry.

    with every artist who goes through this kind of situation (a la Lauryn), there is an underlying cause and i believe that we, as fans should begin to be more openminded when it comes to such instances.

    easier said, i know, but just my sentiments.

    i, for one, will welcome D’Angelo back the same; no matter what his size. he is truly a gifted artist and this stale industry needs him.

    peace & love.

    I love a Big Daddy so he can stay just as he is.

  • Truth

    LADIES. F-U IF YOU WANT HIM TO LOSE WEIGHT.

    This man is the BEST RB artist we have. He’s the only hope. RB is shit right now. We need Raphael and D’Angelo. Name an RB album in the past 15 years that’s as good as Brown Sugar or Voodoo?

    You bitches ruined him before with all that sex symbol crap. Let this super talented black male do his thing….AS A FATTIE.

    He doesn’t need to lose weight. He needs to make amazing music.
