Well, we got news from The Field that you might be easing right back into the mellow grooves of someone who was once called the modern day Marvin Gaye, D’Angelo, makes a comeback. In a recent article in GQ, we see something we thought we’d never see again: a slimmed down, drug free, well minded, and optimistic D’Angelo, ready to make a comeback.

It has become more and more evident that not even our greats are immortal, as D’Angelo realized, so we must do what we can to maintain. This is a great story of rehabilitation and we wanna give a shout-out to D’Angelo From The Field!
