#TBW #throwbackweekend D'ANGELO

ディアンジェロ(D'Angelo 本名:Michael Eugene Archer 1974年2月11日 - )は、アメリカ合衆国バージニア州リッチモンド出身のシンガーソングライターである。リッチモンド南部で宣教師の息子として生まれ、幼少の頃から歌い始めた。
ヴォーカルだけでなく、ピアノ、ギター、そして作詞作曲といったプロダクション作業までこなすマルチな才能を持つ。影響を受けたアーティストにマーヴィン・ゲイ、プリンスの名を挙げているが、ディアンジェロ自身多くのアーティストに多大な影響を与えているいわゆるミュージシャンズ・ミュージシャンである。1995年にファーストアルバム「Brown Sugar」でデビューし、マーヴィン・ゲイやスティーヴィー・ワンダーの時代のソウル感覚とヒップホップ世代の感性を見事に融合させたニュークラシック・ソウル/ネオ・ソウルという一つのムーブメントを作り出し、数々のフォロワーを生み出した。そして2000年にセカンドアルバムである「Voodoo」を発表し、名実共にネオソウルを代表するアーティストとなった。 その後、しばらく自身名義の作品のリリースが途絶えたが、2014年12月15日に14年ぶりとなる3枚目のアルバム「Black Messiah」がデジタル配信でリリースされた[1]。
尊敬するプリンスとは異なり寡作ではあるもの、客演やカバー、楽曲提供は数多くこなしている。インタビューで「自分のことをR&Bシンガーだと思ったことはない、いつだってR&Bなんてくだらないと思っていた」と答えており、初めて作った曲もヒップホップで、常日頃からラップもしているとのこと。
(born February 11, 1974), better known by his stage name D'Angelo (pronounced dee-Angelo), is an American, Grammy Award winning R&B and Neo soul singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. Born in Richmond, Virginia, the son of a Pentecostal minister, he began teaching himself piano as a very young child, and at age 18 he won the amateur talent competition at Harlem's Apollo Theater three weeks in a row. After briefly being a member of a hip-hop group called I.D.U., his first major success came in 1994 as the co-writer and co-producer of "U Will Know".

His debut solo album, Brown Sugar, released in July 1995, received rave reviews and sold over two million copies. Along with artists like Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Maxwell, and collaborator Angie Stone, D'Angelo became part of the Neo soul movement. Following this D'Angelo went on a hiatus before releasing Voodoo in January 2000, which debuted at number one. Its lead single "Untitled (How Does It Feel)," was a smash on the R&B charts and won a Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal; likewise, Voodoo won for Best R&B Album.

Following the release of "Untitled (How Does It Feel)," D'Angelo became more uncomfortable with his growing status as a sex symbol. This was followed by numerous personal struggles including alcoholism, and a fourteen-year musical hiatus. D'Angelo released his third studio album, Black Messiah, in December 2014, although it was originally set for release in 2015; the album was met with critical acclaim and fared well on music charts, peaking at number five on the US Billboard 200.

LYRICS

"Untitled (How Does It Feel)"

Girl it's only U
Have it your way
And if U want U can decide
And if you'll have me
I can provide everything that U desire
Said if U get a feeling
Feeling that I am feeling
Won't U come closer 2 me baby,
You've already got me right where U want me baby

Silly little games U and me play
