Say word, Erykah Badu just released her much anticipated new single “Phone Down” via SoundCloud. The track will appear on her upcoming “You Cain’t Use My Phone” mixtape.
In the Fader Magazine interview Badu stated that “every song is phone-related.” In that same interview, she went on to express her personal feelings toward “You Cain’t Use My Phone” in detail:
I’m in love with this mixtape, it feels good. I think it’s a whole new frequency for the planet and I just wanted to do it because it’s inspiring me to write my new album—it’s kind of like the buffer in between. I would like to describe it as a creative process and I got some really good surprises for you guys. I cannot wait until the end of the month, it will be on iTunes at the end of the month. But along the way, I’m going to drop some freebies and some underground shit just so the people can have something to listen to.
Listen to “Phone Down” below. Erykah Badu also hosted the Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas last night–that broadcast will air on Centric November 29th.
