  1. These damn D'Angelo rumours!!
    Speaking of those on the missing list where is Bilal???
    OK so he featured on a couple of albums this year (88 Keys, Erykah Badu, Solange) but when are we gonna get something from him personally? I know his last album leaked and was shelved (binned?) but surely some label somewhere would sign him! He's massively respected on the soul music scene, even if a label won't sign him he could go the independant route (see Eric Roberson, Musinah, Maiysha).
    OK so rant over .... it's juat that we seem to get an album every 6 months from B.... (not going there!), but the artists who could release something great every 12-18 months are not releasing anything or at best with too long a break.
