Official Leak from Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh

Erykah Badu Erykah Badu has announced the release date for her fifth studio album, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh. The new album is the singer’s hotly anticipated follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2008 disc, New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War.

In contrast to New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, which was digitally produced and political in tone, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh features lush live instrumentation and taps into Badu’s emotional side by thematically focusing on romance and relationships. “With Part One, I was standing at an apex, looking at what was going on around me politically, socially, and economically,” Badu explained. “With Part Two, I’m hovering over me, looking at what’s going on inside of me.”

  • B-SIDE

    Funny thing is I’ve heard this will NOT be on the album rather it’s just a b-side of a single; but the track didn’t fit the album so I’m not 100% sure it’s gonna be easily found..
    >>> Ya’ll forget Erykah may be the queen of Neo-Soul but she’s still a ghetto girl from South Dallas, TX. and although I’m not a fan of the co-lab I ain’t mad @ her for doing what need needs to feed her seeds.
