Erykah Badu has shared a decades-old clip of her performing “On & On” at an open mic night in Brooklyn in 1995. “I guess you just gotta take that first leap…huh? One night I did,” she captioned the video on Facebook. The performance came two years before the release of her debut album Baduizm, a release that would eventually net her the Grammy awards for Best R&B Female Vocal Performance (for “On & On”) and Best R&B Album in 1998.
