Watch D’Angelo’s Interview With Tavis Smiley

Part 1.

September 04, 2015

On Wednesday, D'Angelo stopped by The Tavis Smiley Show for his first on-air interview in over a decade. The conversation ranged from the influence of the church in his music to his new album, Black Messiah, which appeared overnight in December 2014. "Black Messiah is, I think, the most sociopolitical stuff I've done on record," the singer noted. "In lieu of everything that's been going on... something needs to be said." "I'm not trying to be like a poster child or anything of the movement," he added. "But definitely a voice as a black man—as a concerned black man and as a father." Watch above, and stay tuned for the second part of the interview.
