Earlier today I was having a conversation on Twitter about how Erykah Badu’s two New Amerykah albums have been criminally slept-on. Not only did they show off her versatility, but they were cohesive, well-rounded works that deserved more widespread appreciation. I’m sure they sold a decent amount of copies and they definitely received critical praise. But…I’m looking for more than that.
My ranting aside, she has just released some great in-studio footage of her singing “Fall In Love (Your Funeral),” which is off last year’s New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh). It’s a cute viral type of video that, beyond showing off her swoon-worthy vocals, displays why we haven’t heard from her hubby Jay Electronica lately. Dude’s too busy taking a nap on that leather couch!
