Miles Davis & Robert Glasper - "Maiysha (So Long)" (Feat. Erykah Badu) Video
CommentPosted by Susan on 26-06-2016 Robert Glasper released the wonderful collection of reimagined Miles Davis tunes Everything’s Beautiful a little less than a month ago. It had a host of notable features from Bilal, Illa J, KING, Stevie Wonder, Hiatus Kaiyote, and many others. One of the standout tracks was the third single “Maiysha (So Long)” featuring Erykah Badu, and today a visual accompaniment has been unveiled.

Ms. Badulah Oblangata herself gives a great acting performance in a clip that registers more like a filmed musical than a traditional music video. The clip opens with an accented monologue from Badu, interrupted by Glasper and a couple of his players. Glasper and Badu argue backstage about the show they’re about to put on before giving a stunning retro performance of the song with a full band. After the song concludes the lights go out on the stage and the producer and singer continue to argue as she storms off stage. Badu is proving to be quite the versatile entertainer. Watch.

Erykah Badu pays tribute to Prince at the Webby Awards
CommentPosted by Susan on 17-05-2016

The 20th annual Webby Awards, a night that celebrated all things web culture, closed with a tribute from one artist who transcends Internet trends to another -- Erykah Badu and Prince.
To close the curtain on the awards show Monday night, Badu took the stage for a characteristically freewheeling, incredibly groovy of the lurid Prince favorite, The Ballad of Dorothy Parker.
Fittingly, the stage was bathed in purple, as Badu introduced the song as one of her personal favorite Prince songs.
Watch via fan-shot footage from the audience:

Erykah Badu Duet With Miles Davis on New 'Maiysha' Remix
CommentPosted by Susan on 17-05-2016

"I think Miles would've loved Erykah," pianist and producer Robert Glasper told Rolling Stone recently, during a conversation about Everything's Beautiful, an upcoming album on which he reworked snippets of Miles Davis' studio recordings to create entirely new tracks. One of the highlights of the release, which stemmed from Glasper's soundtrack work for Don Cheadle's audacious Davis biopic, Miles Ahead, is a simmering bossa nova version of "Maiysha" – a song originally released on 1974's Get Up With It – featuring lead vocals from Erykah Badu. Hear an exclusive premiere of the track here.

the Trailer for the Awaited Nas/Erykah Badu Film, 'The Land'
CommentPosted by Susan on 09-05-2016 The trailer for the Nas exec. produced, Erykah Badu co-starring film The Land was just released today. When Flavorwire’s own Jason Bailey caught the film at Sundance, he called it “a forceful, scrappy, energetic new film from an exciting new talent” — referring to its feature debut writer/director, Steven Caple, Jr. And the trailer exhibits the assuredness of the debut director, and is all the more enticing for providing more in the way of atmosphere, location and gestural storytelling (we see the friendship between the four main characters mostly through their wanderings around Cleveland streets and their skateboarding skills) rather than laying on too much story or dialogue.
