Last night Reddit's resident HipHopHeads turned up a fifteen-second video trailer for an album title Black Messiah, which can be seen below. Could this be D'Angelo's new album? A representative for D'Angelo declined to comment, but these tweets from author Nelson George suggest the record is indeed called Black Messiah, and may drop soon:
