Watch Erykah Badu Scold Audience, Sing 'Phone Down' at Soul Train Awards
CommentPosted by Susan on 26-11-2015 Erykah Badu wasn't kidding when she asked us to put our "Phone Down." In an exclusive advance clip from this year's Soul Train Awards, airing Sunday, host Badu demands that several distracted audience members in the front row — including Tyrese Gibson — put away their cells and focus on her.

"Tyrese, you're on your phone?" she asks the singer-actor. "You're in the front row on national TV … and you're on your phone?" This annoyance prompts Badu to perform her soulful new track as she scans the crowd for cell phones, retrieving every one she spots. "I can make you put your phone down/As we cruise through the city," she sings. "You ain't gonna text no one when you wit' me."
The 2015 Soul Train Awards air Sunday, November 29th at 8 p.m. EST on BET and Centric. The event will feature performances from Brandy, Fantasia, Jeremih, Boyz II Men, Jazmine Sullivan, Erica Campbell, V. Bozeman, Cameo and surprise guest Bobby Brown. Jill Scott will be honored with the first-ever Lady of Soul Award, and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds will receive the Legend Award.

Erykah at LAX (Los Angeles Airport) on November 12, 2015.


CommentPosted by Susan on 10-11-2015 Erykah Badu is back today with another release in support of her upcoming mixtape But You Cain't Use My Phone. After hitting us with a remix to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” a couple weeks back, Badu returns with another phone-related message of a track titled “Phone Down.”

Along with the release, Erykah wrote “this one for Aubrey,” which remains unknown if was aimed at Aubrey Graham (Drake) or Aubrey Davis, the song’s writer. Either way, it’s some smooth shit that will “make you put your phone down.”
Take a listen to the Zack Witness-produced record and let us know what you think
Quotable Lyrics:
I can make you put phone down
Leave it at the crib guarantee you wouldn’t miss it
I can make you put your phone down
And it wouldn’t leave your pocket
I can make your put your phone down
Prolly wouldn’t even know how to unlock it
I can make you put your phone down

Erykah Badu's 'Live Nudity'
CommentPosted by Susan on 31-10-2015 DALLAS -- What are some words to describe Erykah Badu's one woman performance? Eccentric, unorthodox and quirky come to mind.

The Dallas native presented her show "Live Nudity" at the Black Academy of Arts and Letters, where she first took the stage in her youth.
Her presentation was not a concert nor a play, but a live improvisation in two acts. Those two acts were chances to get into her mind as an artist. Her imagination is what makes her one-woman show special. It was literally a one-woman-show.
"I have a format, kind of, but I haven't really had time to write a 60-minute show, so we just have to see what happens," Badu said in her interview with Craig Jenkins from Noisey.
Badu was the director, actress and designer. There wasn't a supporting actor or any of that. She was all-in-one. It was just her, her props and the whole auditorium was her stage. She interacted with the audience, broke the fourth wall by controlling the stage lights at one point and made the whole event fun. Read more.
