After a decade in limbo, D’Angelo steps on the 12th anniversary of his classic LP Voodoo. The same weekend, rising R&B star Frank Ocean releases a new 90-second songlet also titled “Voodoo.” Hmm. Seems like Ocean might be engaged in a little uh, symbolic magic of some kind. He is from New Orleans–the North American center of hoodoo and magical urbanism. Luckily for his mojo (and us) it’s a pretty dope song, with lyrics that are worth reprinting. Listen below and read after the jump.

darker times
they’re telling boulder heavy lies
looks like all we’ve got is each other
the truth is obsolete
remember when all i had was my mother
she didn’t compromise
she could recognize
our daughters and our sons
are just candles in the sun
don’t let him see divide
don’t you let her see divide
she’s got the whole wide world in her juicy fruit
he’s got the whole wide world in his pants
he wrapped the whole wide world in a wedding band
then put the whole wide world on her hands
she’s got the whole wide world in her hands
he’s got the whole wide world in his hands.
