If Erykah Badu's "cipher keeps moving like a rolling stone," as she so coquettishly proclaims in the legendary single "On & On" from her dazzling 1997 debut, Baduizm, her 2010 opus, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, the follow-up to 2008's critically acclaimed New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, represents the point in Erykah's career where she has traveled that cipher's full 360 degrees and been revitalized. The album, a warm recital of personal philosophies on love and heartbreak, marries the understated wit of the old Erykah to the sonically venturesome new Erykah. On New Amerykah Part Two, structured ballads and airy jam sessions coexist peacefully in the same soulful arena.
This year, Erykah has been DJing out as Low Down Loretta Brown, and released videos for "Gone Baby Gone" (directed by Flying Lotus) and "Out My Mind, Just In Time." The latter was shot as a couple of short, intimate segments entitled, "Movement I" and "Movement II."
