Erykah Badu Clears Paul McCartney Sample via Twitter

badu_paigeparson-1-7-101-199x3001Following Erykah Badu on Twitter this morning, we get a glimpse of the challenging record production process. Last night she announced that she had 24 hours to clear a Paul McCartney sample or her song would not make the album. Ultimately the powers of @fatbellybella made this thing – clearing samples – a notoriously long, difficult, often impossible process- into an incredibly easy link-up. And it looks like the sample has been cleared already, so we’ll be happy to hear that particular track on the next New Amerykah!
