R&B singer D’Angelo is currently in the studio, working on his first major release since 2000, according to Billboard.
The singer is planning on releasing the album on J Records, which purchased his contract in 2005 from Virgin. Virgin, which released D’Angelo’s first two albums, is still planning on releasing a CD/DVD retrospective containing hits, rarities and previously unreleased videos, titled The Best So Far…
Although 2000’s Voodoo sold 1.69 million copies in the U.S., D’Angelo fell out of the limelight largely due to a serious car accident and drug problems. Since then, he’s made appearances on albums by Common, Snoop Dogg and J Dilla.
The Grammy Award-winning singer is remembered for his controversial video for the single “Untitled (How Does It Feel),” in which a presumably nude D’Angelo appeared on video, which filmed him all the way down to his hips. Rumors about the video shoot stated that D’Angelo was receiving oral sex while singing.
