ERYKAH BADU – “Phone Down” [New Track!]

Legendary neo-soul songstress Ms Erykah Badu just dropped a hot as f***, trap-infused, slow-burning jam called “Phone Down” from her upcoming Mixtape entitled, “BUT YOU CAINT USE MY PHONE”!

Badu recently told The Fader the mixtape was inspired by Drake; no surprise there, since she recently dedicated a cover of “Hotline Bling,” (below) to the rapper.

“He’s an inspiration to me. Sonically, he’s in a place where I want to be. It’s halfway between where I was and halfway to where I am now. If I want to come out and do something, I will try and raise myself to his bar or channel myself to his frequency.”

And it appears the work on the mixtape have gotten the creative juices flowing; as she’s also prepping a new album:

 “I’m in love with this mixtape – it feels good. I think it’s a whole new frequency for the planet and I just wanted to do it because it’s inspiring me to write my new album—it’s kind of like the buffer in-between. I would like to describe it as a creative process and I got some really good surprises for you guys. I cannot wait until the end of the month . It will be on iTunes at the end of the month [Thanksgiving]. But along the way, I’m going to drop some freebies and some underground (bleep) just so the people can have something to listen to.”

Janelle Monáe – Q.U.E.E.N. Featuring Erykah Badu


Janelle Monáe and Erykah Badu join forces to deliver Q.U.E.E.N. the first single from Monáe’s upcoming studio album, “The Electric Lady.

The petite funky diva announced the collaboration a few weeks back on her website via this clever teaser.


 Well, Q.U.E.E.N has finally arrived and is fantastic! The empowering anthem is a funky fusion of old-school R&B, Jazz with a touch of a Big Band flare. The funky divas sing and rhyme back-and-forth about intolerance, religion, cattiness and the right to be a freak. “THE BOOTY DON’T LIE”

“This song is inspired by private conversations she and I have had and continue to have,” Monae told Billboard backstage at Coachella earlier this month. “She’s a great friend to me; she’s like a big sister and it’s a song about private dialogue that she and I have had.”

 Q.U.E.E.N is available now via iTunes!
