Soul icon Erykah Badu burst into national prominence in 1997 with her groundbreaking debut album, Baduizm, which earned the singer many accolades including two Grammys and was named by Rolling Stone as one of the 50 best records of the decade.
Badu grew up listening to 70s soul 80s hip-hop, but was often compared to Billie Holiday upon her arrival. She has since released four successful and critically acclaimed albums, including the socially and politically charged New Amerykah Pt. 1: 4th World War. For the sequal, 2010s New Amerykah Pt. 2: Return of the Ankh, taps into the more romantic and emotional side of the artist.
It reminds me of the days of Baduizm, she says. Its just about beats and rhymes in a cipher.
