I’ll tell you how it feels. It feels AWESOME. Ok so it has come to my attention that there are women alive who have never seen this video. That is unacceptable to me for the following reasons:
1. D’Angelo is the most beautiful man to walk this earth
2. He is also (in my humble opinion) one of the most incredible vocalists out there. His voice is like the finest chocolate rolled in EVEN FINER chocolate and then deep fried in molten gold, sprinkled with fairy tears and drizzled with a perfection jus.
3. This song seeps into my very being, every time I hear it. The thumping-heartbeat bassline, the smooth falsetto of his voice, and the way the melody builds to that almost deafening crescendo before suddenly falling silent… I fall in love with it every time.
4. I mean. Ma’am. Just look at him.
In all seriousness though, if you’ve never heard D’Angelo’s “Voodoo” album, please do yourself a favour and purchase it on the immediate. It’s everything neo-soul music should be. Get involved!
p.s. Lawd… the original video was a bit more salacious than I remembered *fans self* I’ve swapped it out with another video that shows you different pics of this gorgeous man. This way you can still gaze upon D’Angelo’s beauty while enjoying the song (But DO WATCH the original video at some point. Because delicious).
