It’s a long time in coming—Erykah Badu is finally releasing Amerykah, Part Two (Return of the Ankh) tomorrow. The album is a followup to the 2008’s totally underappreciated release, New Amerykah, Part One (4th World War). Some of her best, most unexpected music is on that album. So I’m excited about the release, to say the least.
It was Erykah, who inspired, what I think was the first themed b-sides—Under Pressure(s) (In her song Cleva, Erykah tells why she’s fly even though nowadays her ”nannies” sag down low’). While Badu sings plenty of songs about love and leaving, she spends LOT of her time exploring self introspection, growth and pride in a world that wants us to assimilate and tow the party line.
The newly premiered video for Window Seat, is no exception. It’s caused quite a
stuff than love relationships and fame.
So what do you all think of the video? Love? Hate? Yawn? Weigh in!
