[Third studio album from D’Angelo. Released after a 14-year hiatus. 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. Michael Eugene Archer was born February 11, 1974, better known as D’Angelo. Born in Richmond, Virginia, the son of a Pentecostal minister, he began teaching himself piano as a very young child, and at age 18 he won the amateur talent competition at Harlem’s Apollo Theater three weeks in a row. After briefly being a member of a hip-hop group called I.D.U., his first major success came in 1994 as the co-writer and co-producer of “U Will Know”. His debut solo album, Brown Sugar, released in July 1995, received rave reviews and sold over two million copies. Along with artists like Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Maxwell, and collaborator Angie Stone, D’Angelo became part of the Neo soul movement. D’Angelo became more uncomfortable with his growing status as a sex symbol. This was followed by numerous personal struggles including alcoholism, and a fourteen-year musical hiatus. ]
