D’Angelo Plays & Slays ‘Em at Boonnaroo

*Hey y’all, D’Angelo is back on the music scene!

The man who lets his music do the talking,  made his first U.S. appearance in 10 years at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee over the weekend.

“I’ve been waiting 12 years to say this — ladies and gentlemen, D’Angelo!” Roots drummer Questlove announced to a packed house during the festival’s annual “Superjam.” By the way, former guitarist for The Time, Jesse Johnson, also backed D’Angelo.

For those who were there, they saw the artist dually play his keyboard and his guitar as he sang classics like Funkadelic’s “Hit It & Quit It,” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Have You Ever Been (to Electric Ladyland).” Interestingly, he did not perform any of his own songs.

Never one to say a whole lot, the reclusive performer’s only interaction with the crowd came at the end when he asked, “Do y’all wanna go home yet?” As expected, the crowd responded by asking for “One more song,” to which Questlove responded: “We don’t know any more songs. We crammed all those songs into, like, six hours (of rehearsal).”

Don’t worry if you wasn’t there because you’ll be able to see D’Angelo at the Essence Music Festival on July 6.
