D’Angelo‘s understated and deceptively poignant protest anthem “The Charade” pressed to a 7-inch single sharing wax with the album’s hard-nosed rocker “1000 Deaths” as the pressing’s b-side. Clearly, this is one of those must-cop situations, whether Black Messiah was your introduction to the great sage of soul and funk or you’re rounding out your already hefty collection of the man’s singles.


“The Charade” is a head-bopper that reminds me so much of the creativity and musical atmosphere that made me fall in love with Prince. (The comparison is inevitable, but this is definitely the work of D’Angelo.)


"1000 Deaths" samples a preacher talking about the idea of a nappy headed Jesus as the "new black messiah" over heavy funky drumming and slap bass thrusts with "D'Angelo's heavily processed vocals accompanied closely by a staticky,revved up keyboard.
