D'Angelo held a listening session today in New York for his new album with the Vanguard, Black Messiah. A lyric pamphlet was passed out, revealing fellow Soulquarians Q-Tip and ?uestlove collaborated on the album. The first page of the pamphlet (pictured below) explains the meaning of the album's bold title.

The 12-song tracklist includes "Sugah Daddy," which was released early this morning. Check it out below.
- "Ain't That Easy"
- "1000 Deaths"
- "The Charade"
- "Sugah Daddy"
- "Really Love"
- "Back in the Future (Part I)"
- "Till It's Done (Tutu)"
- "Betray My Heart"
- "The Door"
- "Back in the Future (Part II)"
- "Another Life"
Update: Black Messiah will reportedly release at midnight tonight. Word from the listening session is that "Really Love" will be the first single—not "Sugah Daddy."
