    Wow, The Roots with E. Badu is a blast from the past. That brings back some memories right there. Wasn't that Eve who was rapping too?

    Yeah, that was Eve doing that verse in that song. Originally Jill Scott was suppose to perform the song although she co-wrote it with the Roots, but Erykah Badu sang the song and was put in the video instead.

    Re: Erykah Badu

    Awesome! It's one of the tracks she produced with Madlib.

    It sucks that the leaked snippet of "Agitation / Gone Baby Don't Be Long" was pulled offline. I wanted to hear "Gone Baby Don't Be Long" again to hear the sample of Wing's "Arrow Through Me".

    Aw well, I'm praying for a leak LOL. I am wrong for doing so, but I'm just desperately eager to hear this album in its entirety.

Judging from the clips, it sounds like Miss Badu has got another start-to-finish masterpiece on her hands. I swear she's exactly like FedEx, bitch always delivers.




    The Amazon tracklisting for Return of the Ankh is a bit different from the original one that was posted before....I'm assuming this new one is the official tracklisting:

    1. 20 Feet Tall
    2. Window Seat
    3. Agitation
    4. Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY)
    5. Gone Baby, Don't Be Long
    6. Umm Hmm
    7. Love
    8. You Loving Me (Session)
    9. Fall in Love (Your Funeral)
    10. Incense
    11. Out My Mind, Just In Time (Parts 1-3)






    Sidenote-someone was a dear and decided to reupload the snippets for "Agitation" and "Gone Baby, Don't Be Long":





    Enjoy the Ankh, my peoples.
    Pure torture!

    I believe Erykah recorded the 3 part album in her home studio if I'm not mistaken.

    that's what I meant. Why risk getting JUB in trouble just to be the first to brag about a leak.

    Isn't that what PM are for?

I think I was too caught up in my love for the song, I wanted the accompanying video to be just as lovely. Nope, Erykah wasn't about to make things that easy for me. Initially what I saw was raw footage of Erykah walking through a crowd people, removing her clothes piece by piece and at the end she’s shot dead. And naturally I tried to connect all of this with the overall theme to "Window Seat" itself. But the video is much bigger than that one song. It reflects the entire theme of the Return of the Ankh album with her exposing her most innermost thoughts and feelings to the world, running the risk of us hating her for them but at the same time enabling her to grow and evolve as a woman.

    I dunno, I feel you can analyze this video to death with all the subtle touches Erykah placed into it. Which is genius considering how at first glance it is just a video of a woman running down the street butt naked. But when you do look at it closely, one does picks up the JFK association, the themes of reincarnation, the public’s disdain for free-thought and individuality. So for all of that, right now I do love it. Still doesn’t come close to my "Honey" video, but it’s definitely second best.

    And I didn’t realize all of that was real. I was one of the chuckleheads who thought all of those people in the background were hired actors paid to stand around. The respect and admiration points I had for Erykah shot through the roof upon finding that out. I give her much props for not only having the balls to take off your clothes in mid-afternoon public but for also findng a way to not get chucked in jail for doing so. It’s no wonder at all why this chick is my undisputed muse.

    ^Hmm, I must say this was a very brief and concise post by me. Expect another one when Return of the Ankh officially drops and I check back to give my two cents about that.


    Also happy to see respect was given to Matt & Kim.

    If you are in Los Angeles tonight, come celebrate the new release at the Official Album Release Party at the El Rey Theatre, hosted by Erykah Badu with J.Rocc, Kutmah, (DJ) Nobody (Low End Theory) and a surprise performance by...

    "Badu delivers an album that offers the emotional highs, lows and maddening complexities of being involved in a romantic relationship." -- Vibe.com

    Erykah Badu's highly anticipated fifth studio album, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh has arrived. It is the multi-platinum selling, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/actress' follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2008 disc, New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War.

    In contrast to the previous album, which was digitally produced and political in tone, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh features lush live instrumentation and taps into Badu's emotional side by thematically focusing on romance and relationships. Contributions come from some of the most talented, groundbreaking, underground producers and engineers in the hip hop game, including Grammy winners 9th Wonder and James Poyser, eclectic soul singer Bilal, and the late J Dilla.

    Also, view photos from Erykah's show at Good Units at Hudson in NYC on March 27th.

    After listening to the whole CD, its amazing. "Out My Mind, Just in Time" is the truth. It reminds me so much of "Green Eyes", another favorite of mine.

    Erykah Badu charged over Dallas nude video shoot.

    "After much discussion, we feel that these charges best fit her conduct. She disrobed in a public place without regard to individuals and small children who were close by."

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36154684...ainment-music/

    I just skimmed India.Aries twitter, and i see she had nothing to say about this video. But then again Erykah isn't as popular and successful on the charts as Lady G is. That's what it's all about anyway. Jealousy. Envy.

    Those who defend Erykah's video and call it genius, when the director (or whoever) just copied Matt & Kim’s “Lessons Learned” video (down to the death scene at the end), then bash Lady G for nudity and violence in her Telephone video, and Beyonce for her Fossi inspired Single Ladies video, are hypocrites. It's jealously and resentment that they sell more and are more popular than Erykah or whoever they're a fan of, that's not selling as well, or has as many #1's on the Hot 100, plain and simple.

    I love Erykah. 'On and On' is one of favorite tracks and videos ever. It's ridiculous that artists like Ke$ha and Rihanna have #1's and sell millions, yet talented, thoughtful, TALENTED artists like Erykah do not. However, i don't have a different set of standards for each of them just because of that.
    Erykah and her people were irresponsible for doing that in public, in front of kids, just as Matt and Kim were. Just as Lady G and her people were for posting her Telephone video without some disclaimer.

    Anywho, my friends bday party is tonight, and i'll be dancing to Ke$ha and Rihanna like everyone else. Ain't no thang! LOL

    Someone snitched on her


    A Dallas Police spokeswoman said earlier in the week that they wanted to press charges against Badu because children were present, but no one had called police or filed a complaint that day.

    Police now have their witness.

    "One witness did come forward yesterday, thus leading to the charges filed today," a statement from Dallas Police said Friday.

    A citation of misdemeanor disorderly conduct has been mailed to Badu, who is a Dallas resident, police said.
    Congrats Rihanna on your 13th number 1

    She's being fined only $500. That chump-change (for her) is well worth all of the publicity she's getting.

    Really, Erykah is quite revered in these parts.

    I think she knew this would happen. She probably had the fine money set aside before the shoot. The video got people talking so mission accomplished.

    I like the majority of her music. As for this "controversy," it was tacky and she deserved the fine, but also people need to realize why she did it before getting their testes in a twist. I wouldn't have done it, but then again, she's the artist

    Bilal, Robert Glasper join Erykah Badu in Miami

    When Erykah Badu comes to the Waterfront Theatre at the American Airlines Arena on April 8, she won't be alone: Bilal and Robert Glasper will open the show.

    Philadelphia-based Bilal, known for his screechy falsetto, hasn't released an album since 2001's 1st Born Second -- his second album, Love For Sale, was scrapped after leaking online. But he's collaborated with Jay-Z, Common and Ms. Badu herself: He provided background vocals for five tracks on her 2006 album, New Amerykah Part One (4th World War).

    He's also featured on Badu's "Jump Up In The Air (Stay There)" with Lil Wayne, which is an online bonus track for her latest album, New Amerykah Part Two (Return Of The Ankh), due in stores March 30.

    Bilal has promised a 2010 release for his new release, Airtight's Revenge.

    Robert Glasper is a Grammy-nominated jazz and hip-hop pianist and keyboardist whose latest album, Double-Booked, highlights the juxtaposition of his various styles. He's played many times with Bilal, and his RCDC band -- which has often backed Mos Def in concert -- features Badu's excellent drummer Chris "Daddy" Dave.

    Tickets for the show are pricey: They run from $58.50 to $125 and are available at Ticketmaster. But this show is unique for South Florida (it's not part of a bigger Badu tour) and is sure to feature some of the jam-centric hip-hop musicianship often found in New York City concerts, but rarely down here.

    ​Erykah Badu has had a busy couple of days leading up to her performance Thursday at American Airlines Arena in Miami. Not only did Pitchfork give her latest album, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, a glowing, and well-deserved 8.0, but she's on the impressive slate of performers just announced for Lollapalooza 2010. That, coupled with some dates on the Lilith Fair 2010 tour, is a heap of items for Erykah talk about. Right, all that.

    Somehow, an entire paragraph passed without mention of that little "Window Seat" video (streaming on her official site) she released a little over a week ago. For the uninitiated, the clip basically ensured that every Internet perv cruising for "NSFW," "naked" or "JFK assasination spot" items joined the many ecstatic Badu fans who scratched (and nodded) their heads as the bizarre scene unfolded. She has since been charged with disorderly conduct for that day of guerrilla filming in Dallas, but kept on tweeting anyhow.

    After the jump, read New Times' exclusive Q&A with Badu, and get some answers as to why she chose to make the "Window Seat" video.

    Almost as bizarre as the video itself was that Erykah Badu's publicist strictly forbade me from mentioning the "Window Seat" controversy during my brief chat with the neo-soul star on Thursday afternoon.

    New Times: How did you decide to put Miami on the agenda?

    Erykah Badu: I was invited.

    After reading about your surprise show in Los Angeles last week, it seems you've already connected with your new album in a performance setting.

    I love it. It just keeps getting better as we go, it's perfected as we go. The band and I are becoming one organism with it and we aren't even thinking. It's very new, and it's like a new love. It keeps getting better and better.

    How do you feel about returning to old material for the shows to come?

    I do whatever comes to mind. It's all new to me, it's never old. It never loses its importance or its effect on the audience either. Music is like the sixth element. It's something that's in your DNA. You hear a song, and you remember where you were, you remember what you were doing, how it smelled, everything about it. That's the joy of being a performing artist. It's therapy for me. Every song I keep in that moment, or I feel in the audience a need or a want, that's what we do.

    What do you think about the current Lilith Fair lineup?

    I haven't thought about it yet. I have an idea about how powerful it's going to be on the tail of this video I've just done.

    [Note: She brought it up, not me.]

    You're not going to throw all of your clothes off in the middle of the show, are you?

    I don't know if there's anything special you should be looking for. We're just going to let it develop organically, and you're just going to have to wait and find out.

    The conversation ended rapidly after that, as you might imagine. Fortunately for all, Badu did discuss the "Window Seat" video with QuickDFW.com:

    Q: And what was the thinking on the location and the Kennedy element to it?
    Badu: Times Square is the most monumental place in New York, and when I was thinking of monumental places, the grassy knoll was the most monumental place in Dallas I could think of. I tied it in a way that compared that assassination to the character assassination one would go through after showing his or her self completely. That's exactly the action that I wanted to display.

    Q: And I take it you knew that there would be a similar real-life reaction when the video was released?
    Badu: Yeah. I knew that would happen, so as soon as the thought came to my mind, I decided to assassinate myself as a gesture. Because it was going to happen anyway. The video is a prediction of what is happening now.

    Q: Tell me about the logistics of filming. Was it really nudity, or was there trickery involved?
    Badu: Oh no, it was straight guerilla cam. I got out of the car and I went for it. A day before, I took the same path alone to see where I was going and to see where the "x" spot was. And we only had one shot to get it right, and I decided to go at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. I told the cameraman that I would meet him there, and when he saw me pull up, he started. We had to speed the music up because we wanted the effect to be slow-motion.

    Erykah Badu speaks about 'Window Seat' video

    Just spoke with Erykah Badu about an hour ago regarding the reaction to her "Window Seat" video, in which she walks through Dealey Plaza naked and feigns getting shot near the Kennedy assassination site (see it here). We talked for about 15 minutes about her intentions and thoughts behind the concept, and her fears about the consequences of putting it out there.


    Q: To start, what can you tell me about the thought process behind the video?


    Badu: It was filmed Saturday before St. Patrick's Day. It was a pretty spontaneous thing. The song "Window Seat" is about liberating yourself from layers and layers of skin or demons that are a hindrance to your growth or freedom, or evolution. I wanted to do something that said just that, so I started to think about shedding, nudity, taking things off in a very artful way. I am from the theater, and this is just a part of expression to us. A part of art. And, I saw a video by a group called Matt and Kim, and it was filmed in Times Square. And I thought it was the bravest, most liberating thing I've ever seen two people do. And I wanted to dedicate this contagious act of liberation and freedom to them. I hoped it would become something contagious that people would want to do in some way or another.


    Q: And what was the thinking on the location and the Kennedy element to it?


    Badu: Times Square is the most monumental place in New York, and when I was thinking of monumental places, the grassy knoll was the most monumental place in Dallas I could think of. I tied it in a way that compared that assassination to the character assassination one would go through after showing his or her self completely. That's exactly the action that I wanted to display.


    Q: And I take it you knew that there would be a similar real-life reaction when the video was released?


    Badu: Yeah. I knew that would happen, so as soon as the thought came to my mind, I decided to assassinate myself as a gesture. Because it was going to happen anyway. The video is a prediction of what is happening now.


    Q: Tell me about the logistics of filming. Was it really nudity, or was there trickery involved?


    Badu: Oh no, it was straight guerilla cam. I got out of the car and I went for it. A day before, I took the same path alone to see where I was going and to see where the "x" spot was. And we only had one shot to get it right, and I decided to go at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. I told the cameraman that I would meet him there, and when he saw me pull up, he started. We had to speed the music up because we wanted the effect to be slow-motion.


    Q: So, it all happened a lot faster than it seems, but there was still time for people to realize what was going on. Were you afraid of the immediate reactions from folks?


    Badu: Yes. I was petrified, period. The whole thing was frightening. The whole idea was frightening. Not being in love with my body, not being secure about being vulnerable. The police coming to take me to jail. I'm breastfeeding right now. Anything I could think of, I did. But those little things diminished as I thought about the big picture. And, as I started to walk, I confronted a lot of fears, and I hoped that it would encourage others to do the same thing in their own way.


    Q: Are you afraid of any ramifications now, since the city has come out with a statement referring to their disapproval of "guerilla filmmaking?"


    Badu: No. That fear left when I fell to the ground. With the death of that part of me, a lot of those fears died as well. I had a paradigm shift, of sorts.


    Q: So, this was meaningful for you in a more important way than just making a video or stunting?


    Badu: Yes.


    Q: Do you have anything else to say to the folks who aren't having a positive reaction to this?


    Badu: Sure, I would like to say that it was a protest to awaken a term called "groupthink." It's a term that was coined in 1952. It's the recognition of a state of being for humans. It's human nature for a person to be afraid to express his or herself in fear of being ostracized by the group or general consensus. A lot of times people are judged unfairly because of that. I think about the Salem witch trials, I think about the assassination of Christ, I think about the character assassination of artists and celebrities on blog sites. I think about all of these things as groupthink. And when I fall to the ground in the video, the word groupthink spills out of my head, because I was assassinated by groupthink.
    ...
    When I told my mother what I wanted to do, she was not 100 percent confident that it was the right thing, but she was supportive. I shared it with my family and made sure I told them that this act is not in any way a reflection of who they all are. It's who I am. They said I had their support. I have young children whom I was considerate of and I told them what I was doing. My 5-year-old said, "OK mommy, can I have some more pudding?" My 12-year-old said, "It's all right because I can explain to everyone that my mother is a wonderful person and she's just having fun." After hearing that, I took myself a lot less seriously.


    Q: Did you consider the children in the plaza that day?


    Badu: I didn't think about them until I saw them, and in my mind I tried to telepathically communicate my good intent to them. That's all I could do, and I hoped they wouldn't be traumatized. The people that got caught in the shot seemed as if they didn't even see me. There were a couple of people, and a guy picking up clothes. It all happened so fast. Of course they saw the camera, so they knew we were shooting something. But it was a great day for me.


    Q: So, no regrets?


    Badu: No regrets. Move forward from here.

    Erykah Badu gets fine, probation for Dallas strip

    AP) – 1 day ago

    DALLAS — A city spokesman says singer Erykah Badu has paid a $500 fine and will serve six months of probation for stripping during a music video shoot at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, where President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot in 1963.
    Badu performed a walking striptease March 13 for her "Window Seat" music video. The video ends with a nude Badu falling to the ground as if she has been shot.
    Police in April cited her for disorderly conduct after a witness made a sworn complaint. A number of children were among the tourists and other random passers-by seen on the video.

    Dallas city spokesman Frank Librio says Badu paid the fine Friday.

    A spokeswoman for the singer did not immediately comment.

    Damn, Damn, Damn!

    When she played in Miami recently I didn't have the $$$ and it was a very busy time at work. Now I have a ticket and the entire holiday weekend to enjoy and she cancels.

    Holding on to my ticket until new date announced. Hopefully it won't be when I'm working on a special project at work.

    Erykah Badu's Concert Tonight at James L. Knight Center Canceled


    ​Call off your trip to New Amerykah 'cause Crossfade just received official word from the James L. Knight Center's assistant marketing director Roxy Este that tonight's Erykah Badu concert has been canceled.

In the meantime, all ticketholders can return their passes for a refund at the point of purchase. However, if you choose to hold onto them, tickets for the January 14 show will be honored for the rescheduled concert.

    So far, we haven't been able to uncover the exact cause of this last-minute cancellation. But calls have been made to the Grown & Sexy Tour's promoter and we expect to hear back real soon.

    She put on the greatest concert I've ever seen! I also got to see J Davey and Janelle Monae at the same show I was in such ecstasy that night.

    I'm new to the Erykah party having only heard my first full proper album less than a week ago. I am seriously impressed! I'm listening to "Mama's Gun" right now and came across this thread at the same time. Synchronicity!

It's impossible.



    Our feeble, jaded minds could not have came up with a lyric as alluring as Oh, Maker tell me did you know that this love would burn so yellow. Becoming orange and in its time, explode from grey to black then bloody wine. Only a programmed mind from another galaxy could have thought up words as elegant as those.

    And my feeble mind missed the opportunity to see Badulla and Janelle share the same stage together back in June. So I'm like really, really jealous right now. But I'm glad you had a wonderful time tho.
    This woman is indeed from another planet! Your average person in there 20's doesn't even know about the movie metropolis yet she fully grasped the concept, flipped it and added her spices!

    My favorite Badu album is actually the most recent. I love Part II especially "20 feet tall"!
