D'Angelo and the Vanguard – Black Messiah

Black Messiah

Black Messiah is the third studio album from D'Angelo, an American R&B artist. This is also his first album in 14 years. Reception so far has been incredible and this is an album R&B fans can't miss. Listen to the track Really Love and The Charade to get a quick taste for the album. But do yourself a favor and catch the entire thing. [R&B / Soul]

The Pinkprint

Nicki Minaj dropped The Pinkprint earlier this week. It's her third and latest studio album. Love her or hate her, you can't ignore her and there are a few catchy singles on here. Pills n Potions and Want Some More are some singles that are worth checking out. [Hip hop]

The Equalizer

The Equalizer is now available for you to buy on Xbox Video. This was one of my favorite thrillers of 2014 and worth checking out. It stars Denzel Washington and has so much action you won't be bored. Not sure it's worth getting? Check out the extended preview on Xbox Video. [R, 2 hr 14 min]
