Erykah Badu – New Amerykah (Part One) 4th World War
Universal Motown’s multi-platinum-selling, Grammy awardwinning singer/songwriter/actress Erykah Badu returns to the music scene with her new album “New Amerykah” featuring the debut single “Honey”. Laced with Erykah’s bluesy grit and MC style vocals, the song is bolstered by producer’s 9th Wonder’s razor sharp hip hop beats. Badu describes the song as “an old school track with some funk on it.” The release of “Honey” on November 20th also marks Badu’s 10th year in the music industry. To celebrate, the gifted trendsetter prepares the release of her much anticipated new album on her birthday, February 26th. Badu has enlisted some of the most talented, groundbreaking underground producers and engineers in the hip-hop game to support her breakthrough return, including Grammy Award winning producer 9th Wonder (Jay-Z, Nas, Mary J. Blige), Madlib, Mike “Chav” Chavarria and R&B singer Bilal. A special, 12-inch pink wax edition will be available only to DJ’s next month and will feature underground tracks, “The Healer” and “Real Thang.” “The music is the star,” says Erykah, “I just laid down my vocals and let the music breathe while the melodies tell the stories.” This album is part one of the series New Amerykah Part 1&2.
