Brew Beauties Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu teamed up to bring the funk on a new track off Janelle’s upcoming project. “Q.U.E.E.N.” was inspired by big sister-little sister kinds of conversations between the two singers. The song covers everything from religion to self love and shady broads over the funkiest of gee-tars.
Take a listen.
Janelle’s album, “The Electric Lady,” is listed as upcoming with no official release date announced just yet. Are you digging this jam?

The Flaming Lips and Erykah Badu have teamed up for a WTF? video moment. Basically, most of E. Badu’s videos of late have been WTF? moments…and I’m totally okay with that. The song is a beautiful, almost creepy remake of “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.” The video features glitter, a naked arse, a couple boob shots, something that looks a lot like blood and, uh, what looks like the sticky remnants of what they call the “money shot” (or, so I hear). Anyway, if you’re at work, don’t watch it yet.
Taste The Brew for the video

To spend a few minutes inside the mind of Erykah Badu has to be a brilliant journey. In this interview/lecture with the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, Badu gives us two full hours inside her brain. She explains how some of her greatest hits were made and talks about her musical influences, the decline of the music industry, her start as a rapper and her friendship with (and attempted seduction of) the late music producer J Dilla. If you’re into music history, how songs are made and how producers find samples: you’ll love this.

Jay-Z’s Roc Nation is on fire! After signing Willow Smith (*I whip my hurrr daily, BTW*) and Rihanna, the camp announced its newest member is
Erykah Badu’s latest baby daddy the very brilliant lyricist Jay Electronica. Jay-Z announced the other Jay will be throwing his diamond in the sky during an event in New York last night. Well…all was happy ’til the news got to Diddy. Ya see, Diddy had been sniffing around Jay Electronica real hard for some time now, even getting him to record a song (“The Ghost of Christopher Wallace“) – as if signing to Bad Boy was still a relevant option after 1997. Apparently, the Didster is all up inside his feelings over this. And you know where to go when you’re having a case of the menstruation………………. yep, TWITTER.
