D'Angelo talks about meeting Questlove through Prince's music

Questlove and D'Angelo talk Prince backstage at Carnegie Hall

Okayplayer TV is proud to present ?uestlove and D’Angelo, starring in Let’s Talk About Prince, Part 2 (the electric boogaloo, as it were). In this exciting episode we get the real-life origin story of the dynamic duo who called themselves Brothers In Arms for their recent and brilliant 2-man show at Brooklyn Bowl–and who are undoubtedly the heart of the whole Soulquarian moment which is the foundation of Okayplayer-ism. Turns out that the guiding spirit that brought these two jukebox heroes together was none other than Prince–in particular a Prince song (“6”? Or maybe “10”? No. Definitely “4.”) that ?uestlove snuck into a performance by The Roots while onstage at a Fugees show in L.A.–the very first time he and D’Angelo ever linked. We could go on but…trust, it’s waaay more fun to hear ?uesto and D tell it in this split-screen interview conducted backstage at Michael Dorf‘s Music Of Prince Tribute at Carnegie Hall. Press play below for an extremely entertaining 2 minutes and some seconds:
