Valentine’s Day just got a lot more special. D’Angelo has announced a special Verzuz concert with friends, which will stream live from the historic The Apollo on Saturday, Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. ET.
The soul crooner shared the news during an Instagram live broadcast on Sunday night. He also hinted that a new album is coming soon. While chatting with D-Nice on Instagram, he said “yes sir” when D-Nice mentioned there was a project in the works. The mysterious album will follow his critically-acclaimed 2014 LP, Black Messiah, which won Best R&B Album at the 58th Grammy Awards.
In 2019, it was reported that D’Angelo was working on new music. Carine Bijlsma, the director behind his documentary, Devilâ€™s Pie â€” Dâ€™Angelo, confirmed the information. â€œHe was in the studio these past weeks. He has big plans for the future, so youâ€™ll definitely be seeing more of him,” she teased.
This will mark the second music-related event Verzuz has hosted in 2021. In January, Ashanti and Keyshia Cole held their Verzuz battle from separate locations. The R&B veterans garnered over 6 million views across various platforms, including Instagram Live and Apple Music.
