The only non-Weeknd album I would be willing to have sex to. I dont mean to sound sus or anything but I had a 13-inch boner (new record btw) while listening to the entire thing.

Absolute frickin masterpiece from mr. D’angelo he really a genius no.2 album in a row of pretty much perfection but this time around he somehow got even better with a looser and more free flowing tangle of smouldering grooves and layered vocals and all that other sexy ass d’angelo shit this man could do whatever he wants to me and oh my god this album is hot hot hot one time it was so hot I had to turn it off because it was just too much for the moment however with that ... read more
