D'Angelo and The Vanguard performing 'The Charade' and 'Really Love' on SNL

D'Angelo performed two songs off his highly anticipated album Black Messiah “Really Love" and "The Charade" on Saturday Night Live. For the latter, D'Angelo appeared on stage that had a chalked outline of a body, wearing a black hoodie, a tribute to Trayvon Martin, while his band, The Vanguard, was clad in black T-shirts emblazoned with the phrases "Black Lives Matter" and "I Can't Breathe" — slogans of a national response to the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, and others. In the chorus, he sings: "All we wanted was a chance to talk/ 'Stead we only got outlined in chalk/ Feet have bled a million miles we've walked/ Revealing at the end of the day, the charade."

Brittany NaCole - Daydream

Brittany NaCole from the Columbus and Chicago areas will put you in the mind of an earlier E. Badu, not necessarily in the voice, but her flow, writing, and style. My favs are 'The Jigg Iz Up', 'Strung Out' and 'The Shore', which is a slower tempo, but not your normal love song. The drums on that chorus are whoa.

The music is solid and she's able to utilize her vocals perfectly with the beats. Check it out, it's good music.
