TEAM PICKS OF THE WEEK
RADIO PLUGGER AND IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT
From his stellar comeback album Black Messiah, 'Prayer' is a drunk hymnal that simmers right in the middle of the record's murky stew. A guitar mutation of Voodoo's drunk Dilla funk, the song functions as a spiritual self pep-talk - D'Angelo himself wading through a 12 year sabbatical that saw him overcome personal turmoil and addiction. "Lord, keep me away from temptation..." "All this confusion around me, give me peace." Essential listening from one of music's current greats.
