D’Angelo’s surprise year-end release of long anticipated Voodoo follow-up Black Messiah took the music world by storm. It was his first release in almost 15 years, and accordingly, clamor for him to do press about the record ensued. Eventually, he broke his silence for an interview with Rolling Stone, teasing a companion piece to the album. Now, he’s broken another long silence and returned to the TV interview format by appearing on Tavis Smiley. This is his first TV interview in over a decade, so it’s kind of a big deal. Watch it below.
UPDATE: The second part of the interview is now online, and you can watch that below.
