D’Angelo may be in some serious trouble with law enforcement for soliciting a prostitute Saturday but, the R&B singer remains optimistic about his first album to be released in a decade. “We know there is a lot of speculation in regard to the arrest of D’Angelo in New York City this past weekend. We would like his fans and the public at large to know that D’Angelo has pled not guilty — and is contesting the allegations made against him, a rep for D’Angelo confirmed in a statement Monday. “Also know that, he is in good health and extremely excited about his forthcoming new album. While little is known about the album, which has been tentatively titled “James River,” it is believed to be set for release later this year. As far as his case however, D’Angelo’s statement goes on to ask the public to refrain from jumping to any conclusions. “D’Angelo would like to personally thank all of his fans for the outpouring of concern, and appreciates if all would allow the American justice system to resolve the matter before jumping to any conclusions.” As previously reported, the singer allegedly offered an undercover policewoman $40 for oral sex.
