“Sugah Daddy” marks the return to recorded music, after a fourteen year (!) hiatus, of the enormously talented D’Angelo. The clattering and very funky “Sugah Daddy” exists in the more pop eschewing “Chicken Grease” side of D’s sound but contains all the feel and harmonic innovation (and more!) that made D’Angelo a singular talent and artist. “Sugah Daddy” is really really good. D’Angelo’s third LP Black Messiah is out this week.
