Untitled (How Does it Feel)

Did not know this until I read it on Wiki. Love this song.......

Background and recording[edit]

"Untitled (How Does It Feel)" was originally intended as a tribute to influential musician Prince.[2] The song evokes Prince's earlier work, in particular his balladry, from his Controversy period, as well as his musical style and falsetto vocal technique.[2][3] As an homage to the musician, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, record producer for Voodoo, described the song as "finding the line between parody and honesty ... In an era of 'the cover song', redoing a Prince song was taboo. This is the second best thing".[2] Production of the song was handled by D'Angelo and fellow neo soul musician Raphael Saadiq, who also contributed with bass and musical arrangements during recording in 1999.[4] The session took place at Electric Lady Studios, the recording studio originally built by influential rock musician Jimi Hendrix.[5]

Song is stellar, Voodoo's (1 of my all time favorites) centerpiece/ climax (pun sorta intended lol). Never realized Africa, the song right after Untitled, samples I Wonder U til just recently cool

Yes, I remember this too Pook! At the time, it seemed quite obvious he was channelling his inner Prince.

This video made me realize I like girls more lol but these days I’m seeking a male companion, was in a flirtationship with a girl few years ago and she was a handful, plus family didn’t like how she used me for things and took advantage of my kindness
