If you’ve slept on who Erykah Badu is, then it’s time to wake up. There are few more influential, more iconic women in music than the baddest, the Badu. And she’s coming to Manila this October!
We’re happy to school you in Baduizm and our fave songs we hope to hear from her when she comes.
On & On
When this came out in the ‘97, the queen of neo soul received 6 nominations and won Favorite Female Solo Single for this track as well as the Best R&B/Soul or Rap Song of the Year. So, defo have a listen.
Andre 3000’s former first lady released this song in 2000 and it was #6 in the Billboard Hot 100, her first single to reach the top 10.
Drake counts Erykah Badu as one of his advisors, someone who he comes to for love and music advice (he mentions her in his track Days In The East). In this song, this love guru pays homage to classic records and starts the intro with her sultry voice like a jazzy number.
Love of My Life (An Ode To Hip Hop)
Spending four weeks at the top of the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Singles & Tracks, the Grammy Winner collaborated with Common (one of her famous exes) for this ode to hip-hop. The song details Erykah and Common’s love history and her love for the genre.
In 2008, the songstress released a song that celebrates her body, herself as a whole. “Everything around you see, the Ankhs, the wraps, the plus degrees, and yes even the mysteries it’s all me.” It’s owning up to every single part of herself. Inspiring, awakening, amazing.
