Beyoncé Calls D’Angelo’s Voodoo “The DNA of Black Music”

Read reflections from Beyoncé, Solange, Kindness, A-Trak and more on D’angelo’s seminal sophomore album

For the 15th anniversary of D'angelo's seminal Voodoo album, Solange's R&B-focused hub Saint Heron collected quotes from a spread of influential artists on their memories of the record and the impact it's had. SH owner Solange talks about her son breakdancing to "Devil's Pie," and Beyoncé, A-Trak, Kindness and more speak on how the record shaped the sounds they would make in its shadow. "His song structure of mixing classic R&B with the true roots of gospel jam session still resonates today. It is an album you can listen to from start to finish," Beyoncé commented. "This is the DNA of black music; all the love, pain, social statements and rawness punctuated by his effortless vocal progression from his funky low register to his sexy falsetto."
