Let’s be real for a moment…Erykah Badu made it cool for black people to be “artsy,” especially black females. Even though her music has changed drastically since her debut, she is THE quintessential neo-soul singer, and the most influential female figure in Hip-Hop/R&B since…well…ever. 
Once upon a time, there was a girl that I liked, and who liked me. However, there was a Badu song that she said reminded her of me. The song was “Next Lifetime,” which sucked beyond belief at the time… Sad, right? I thought it was. I got over it, but I think everyone in our generation can relate a song to Erykah Badu with a person they care/have cared about.
Shots out to…well, she knows who she is.
