Erykah Badu Performs “Window Seat” on Jimmy Kimmel

Posted by T. Adeyemi on March 31, 2010

Ms. Badu, I just wanted to let you know that we still Love you. We will always love you. Your style, your grace, your essence is all we have left of what’s real and true in this continually political music industry.

We are so sorry for categorizing you with India Airie’s & the Angie Stone’s of the world. No disrespect to them, but I for one, am ashamed that I allowed myself to put you into that Neo Soul box. Because you are so much more than just Neo Soul. You are Hip Hop, Jazz, Truth, Reality, and Soul. Indeed, you are a visionary and internally the image of women I wish I met more often around town.

Ms. Badu, Thank You.

Make sure you go and pick up 2 copies of her latest compilation: New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) which hit stores yesterday. I’m a day late on picking mine up. (Don’t judge me.)
