WORST NEW TRACK | d’angelo, “sugah daddy” (rca)

Remember when Outkast made “Idlewild” and everyone was like – is it an Outkast album?  Is it a  musical?  Is Andre 3000 just dicking around?  Is the music any good?  Does it matter because everyone looks really cool?  Is it hip-hop?  Jazz?  Hip-hopera?  Is that a piano?  Who even uses real piano anymore?  Are they rich?  Are they poor?   Does it matter because everyone still looks really cool?

These questions went unanswered as “Idlewild” slowly drifted into the nether world of pop culture – a feather and a gold sequin for a grave – and I have the distinct feeling that “What the hell is D’Angelo saying?” may suffer a similar fate.   Listener beware – funky-ass horn-hits and piano can only take one so far.
