The new single, "Window Seat," finds Badu holding her own broken-beautiful voice as confidently as on anything since her 1997 debut, Baduizm. In the brash, NSFW "Window Seat" video, she takes off all of her clothes on the Dallas, Texas street where JFK was assassinated. Elsewhere on the album, she boasts she's 20 feet tall. No argument here.
Artistically, the past couple of years have been good to Badu, so it's the right time to reward her by reveling in her greatness in person.
