Amerykah Badu Comes Back Funkier Than Ever

In case you didn't already know, Erykah Badu's long-awaited album, New Amerykah, Part One: 4th World War is in stores now. The album came out yesterday on Erykah's birthday and it's tight. Yesterday was also Ky-mani Marley's birthday...and it seems that a musical lovechild between the two artists must be in the cards. Regardless, Erykah's disc is finally out and the tracks I've heard off it so far are banging!!

It's hard to believe this is only Erykah's fourth studio album. It seems like she's been around the music scene forever, and in fact, Baduizm came out 11 years ago. She definitely takes considerable gaps in between projects but motherhood probably has a lot to do with that.

Here's a video for the first single off the album. It's called, "Honey" and is produced by 9th Wonder.
