Black Messiah is the third studio album by American recording artist D'Angelo. It was released in 2014 through RCA Records, bringing an end to his 14-year hiatus.

Black Messiah was among 2014's most highly anticipated albums and was released to commercial success. The album was also met with rave reviews from music critics, who praised the album's socially relevant lyrics and its use of multiple genres. The album was ranked as one of the best albums of 2014 by several publications.

 Black Messiah won Best R&B Album at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards as well as Best R&B Song for "Really Love" which also was nominated for Record of the Year. – Wiki

"Black Messiah is a dictionary of soul, but D'Angelo is the rare classicist able to filter the attributes of the greats in the canon into a sound distinctly his own. It’s at once familiar and oddly unprecedented, a peculiar trick to pull on an album recorded over the span of a decade.The timeliness of Black Messiah’s message is doubly astounding." - Pitchfork

“The prodigal son of the soul and funk canon, D'Angelo, is back. His ever-awaited third studio album, Black Messiah, is his first album since the critically acclaimed Voodoo, bringing to an end a 14-year hiatus. The album blends 70's jazz-funk and neo-soul.

Anyone who's been keeping up should be keen to the fact that the long-lusted over project was recorded in full analog, so the liner notes' PSA “For best results, listen at maximum volume” should be taken as a direct order for fervent D'lievers. And what better way to experience the gritty greatness of the release than a heavy-bodied vinyl pressing for the audio junkies?

The album features tracks co-penned by Kendra Foster (Parliament/Funkadelic) and Q-Tip (A Tribe Called Quest). It's also co-produced by Questlove (The Roots), bassist Pino Palladino (John Mayer Trio, The RH Factor), and drummer James Gadson (Bill Withers, Temptations, Beck, Jamie Lidell).” – Fat Beats
