Chitter chatter continues following the back to back murderation at the Highline Ballroom on Tuesday and Wednesday compliments of The Robert Glasper Experiment. A momentous occasion it is with Black Radio topping iTunes pop charts and getting itself onto the likes of David Letterman. Above, you can watch the Letterman performance of “Always Shine” featuring Bilal and Lupe Fiasco.

Below, find the photo slideshow from the ridiculously breathtaking release shows at the Highline Ballroom, which have been described as “spiritual” by more than a few.

If you’ve been anywhere on the internet today, you’d should have easily seen about eleventy-billion posts about our man Robert Glasper and his oh so fancy Experiment’s release of Black Radio. We’re still blinking after seeing the iTunes price of $6.99 – that’s like, basically free.

Yes, the album actually features Erykah Badu, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Shafiq Husayn, Ledisi, and Meshell Ndegeocello, amongst others. No, we’re not kidding when we say the that Black Radio is top to bottom worthy of a sublime stupor.

After dizzying ourselves from running around in circles of excitement all morning, we have now transitioned to the running man in anticipation of the release show at the Highline Ballroom in NYC tonight. And while you’re hating us in our unabashed show-off, do know that you can also gloat by grabbing tickets to tomorrow’s newly added second release show on Wednesday, February 29th.

Also, hats off to Okayplayer for premiering the video for the title track featuring Yasiin Bey! Check it out above.
