Yesterday, Erykah Badu released her much anticipated album, New Amerykah Part II: Return Of The Ankh. Her powerful video for the song “Window Seat” recently premiered and here was Georgia Mae’s music guru’s response: “I see how Badu got all her men to wear crochet hats and all that other crazy mess. Badu kinda thick up under them Kente cloths!”
If you haven’t heard, Badu removes all of her clothes in the video, but not in a striptease kind of way. Her nudity is meant to make a political statement. (The video also begins with audio from the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.) Unfortunately, I’m not sure if Edd or any other heterosexual man will be paying attention to the message she’s trying to convey. Check it out and let us know what you think. Meanwhile, Edd is going to try to gather his composure and put together a review of the new album. You can expect it this week.
