Erykah Badu is one of the most intriguing and original soul artists. She has not released a studio album since the first two parts of her proposed trilogy New Amerykah Part 1 (2008) and New Amerykah Part 2 (2010). Her last feat was the 2015 mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone. However, she does still perform - and how! Search the internet and you'll see recent performances by Badu that invariably give you goosebumps. Since her 1997 debut album Baduizm, the idiosyncratic singer has been acclaimed for her innovative style in which soul, jazz, and hip hop play equal roles. But perhaps the most special thing about her is how she manages to express the confusion that so often accompanies love. Not only does Badu surprise musically, but also with her sometimes non-conventional social views and her ever-changing appearance; fashion, hairstyles and art are also an important form of expression for her.
