Sex: How to Do Everything - Untitled (How Does It Feel) - Netflix
“Untitled (How Does It Feel)” is a song by American recording artist D'Angelo, released January 1, 2000 on Virgin Records in the United States. It was issued as a radio single in promotion of his second studio album, Voodoo (2000). Written and produced by D'Angelo and Raphael Saadiq, the song was originally composed as a tribute to musician Prince. “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” contains a vintage style and sound similar to that of Prince's early musical work. The song's lyrics concern a man's plea to his lover for sex. The song received generally favorable reviews from music critics and it earned D'Angelo a number of awards. “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” also earned notice for its controversial music video. Directed by Paul Hunter and Dominique Trenier, the video consists entirely of one shot featuring a muscular D'Angelo appearing nude and lip-synching to the track. While initial reaction from viewers was divided with praise for its sexuality and accusations of sexual objectification, the video received considerable airplay on music video networks such as MTV and BET, and it helped increase mainstream notice of D'Angelo and Voodoo. The music video for “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” had a considerable impact on D'Angelo's recording career, as it helped engender an image of him as a sex icon to a younger generation of fans. However, his discontent with this image led to his period of absence from the music scene following the conclusion of the supporting tour for Voodoo. The song won a Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 43rd Grammy Awards in 2001. Rolling Stone magazine named “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” the fourth best single of 2000. The magazine later named it the fifty-first best song of the 2000s (decade).
Sex: How to Do Everything - Interpretations - Netflix
Music writers offered various interpretations of the video's style and concept. David Peisner of Spin wrote of the close-ups featured in the music video, “As the camera sucks him in, it feels intimate and intrusive, revealing and voyeuristic”. Music critic Jim Farber commented that D'Angelo's torso “sways in grinding rhythm, tensing and releasing as his mouth curls in pleasure and his eyebrows narrow to measure an ecstatic contraction”, while claiming that the video has “nothing but close-ups of D'Angelo's buff body on the apparent receiving end of one of life's great payoffs”. In his essay “'Untitled': D'Angelo and the Visualization of the Black Male Body” for his 1999 Wide Angle journal, journalist Keith M. Harris interprets the video to be a portrayal of D'Angelo's “discursive play with masculinity and blackness”. In his review of D'Angelo's Voodoo, Mark Anthony Neal of PopMatters wrote of the video in contrast to most music videos in R&B and hip hop at the time, stating “One could call the video for 'Untitled (How Does it Feel)' narcissistic, but in an era when most R&B videos are nothing but 'bling, bling' and booty, D'Angelo's bare naked torso was refreshing”. On the video's camera range and angle, Stephen Hill, a senior vice president for BET, had stated “It stopped just north of the line where, you know, we would have had issues”. A 2008 press release for D'Angelo described the music video as “featuring D'Angelo as a shirtless Adonis that catapulted him into the stratosphere and firmly cemented his place as the reigning King of Soul.”
