New Music: Erykah Badu – “Phone Down”
Sometimes it’s worth the wait for new music: Neo-soul queen Erykah Badu has returned as sensual as ever, and Drake-style. Badu called Drake her “little brother” after hanging out with him in a studio in Canada back in the days of Take Care, and last month Badu co-wrote a seven-minute “Hotline Bling” cover with Seven Benjamin. This month she cut it down and released a second song inspired by Drake’s “Hotline,” called “Phone Down.” The track will feature on her upcoming mixtape BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE.
Get excited for Badu’s new mixtape, set to be dropped Thanksgiving Weekend. While waiting, check out “Phone Down” on Soundcloud:
