Masterpiece Review

by Andy Kellman

Masterpiece is Deitrick Haddon's first proper solo album since 2013's R.E.D. (Restoring Everything Damaged). Since that album's release, he guided his League of Xtraordinary Worshippers and got involved with the reality series Preachers of L.A. and Preachers of Detroit. Haddon updates his unique contemporary gospel sound, combining modern R&B and hip-hop elements while drawing from traditional gospel and soul. Among the highlights are bouncing tracks like "Sinners," "Running," and "Masterpiece" itself. Later cuts such as "Under Control" and "Testify" are relatively organic and stripped down yet no less potent.
