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.
