D’Angelo, Saturday Night Live, Saturday, January 31st, 2015

By Iman Lababedi | February 1, 2015

Written eight years ago, Black Messiah would’ve been everything people say it is if the rest of the album was as great as “Really Love” and with D’Angelo’s gorgeous falsetto and a Spanish groove r&b love song of the first order at his disposal, the r&b man got all of it.

Where is Helen Bach, who woulda been much meaner than I was? Well, she has resigned from the SNL beat and I don’t really blame her. 1D are good sports but boring boys.

Now if I can survive the first tune by the musical guest I’m throwing myself a victory party. No lie- it’s horrible. When we bitched and moaned over the loss of Belushi and Radner and claimed the Billy Crystal/Eddie Murphy days were crap we had no idea things could and would get much much worse.
