Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh

She’s an adventurous soul diva who bridges r&b, jazz and hip hop.

But there are plenty of funky grooves and down-to-earth vibes on “Window Seat,” about an ambivalent lover, and the melancholic “Out My Mind Just in Time,” in which Erykah sings “I am a recovering undercover over-lover.”
