Daniel Caesar – Freudian (Album Review)

A few months ago, I wrote a piece for Vibe Fridays: Daniel Caesar – Get You.

He said, “Your different and special in every way imaginable. I want you Christina, I want ALL of you not just bit and pieces like you give everyone else.” My stomach DROPPED...I sat in silence.
