Erykah Badu – Return of the Ankh

returnoftheankh452

Our girl Erykah is back with a new album.  This album, titled New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh, is shaping up to be something quite promising.  I’ve got my hesitations, mainly due to the fact that she has a collabo with Lil’ Wayne (called “Jump Up in the Air and Stay There”).  Oddly enough, The Guardian says that the Lil Wayne track is absent from the album.  Either there was a last minute change, or the UK version of the disc is somehow different than the North American.  I guess we’ll see once I get my hands on it.

[Update: Pitchfork is saying the following

Billboard originally reported that Badu would include a track called “Jump in the Air”, which would feature a ton of guest rappers, including Lil Wayne and Andre 3000. But a Wayne-featured early version of the track leaked, and Badu has since eliminated it from the tracklist. Instead, a version of “Jump in the Air” with just Wayne and Bilal will appear as a web-only bonus track. Sad news for all of us who badly wanted to hear a Badu-helmed posse cut.

Guess that explains the difference.]

For those of you looking for the beats, this album definitely has you covered.  With production (somehow) from J. Dilla, 9th Wonder, and Madlib, you are pretty much guaranteed to find something you like.  In the video below, a track called “Window Seat”, you get to hear ?uestlove jamming on the drums .

If “Window Seat” is any indication, I think I’m going to be quite happy with this album.

    KetchupJ’ai vu inte9gralement cette vide9o, qui dure 5 minutes au plus, le temps d’un stseepteare de9contracte9, avec des gestes nonchalants comme si Erykah Badu se de9barrassait en premier de ses chaussures qui semblent la blesser et de son blouson trop chaud. Le de9part se situe depuis le cheminement de la voiture officielle de JFK avec l’horodateur qu’elle touche pour en donner le signal. Puis le ve9ritable de9sahabillage se pre9cise, lorsque par transparence ses dessous noirs se devinent, le soutien- gorge retire9, son dos marque9 “evolving” comme au fer rouge se livrant telle une esclave avec des ondulations fessiers assez marque9s. Elle examine au loin avec des regards inquiets et voulus, si les badauds te9moins, la regardent et la suivent, si tout est en ordre, pour poursuivre son processus. Entie8rement nue , elle se plie en deux, simulant une attaque foudroyante e0 l’endroit exact de l’assassinat de Kennedy. Il ne faut pas rechercher de symbf4lique dans cette attitude, mais simplement une affaire juteuse de marketing , en utilisant des signes et des souvenirs. Une quelconque avenue paraissait insipide pour son public, un fait reconnaissable et appuye9 peu faire vendre n’importe quelle platitude , alors autant en rajouter avec un corps nu d’une “de9esse”, d’une certaine musique soul. Le cf4te9 choquant est e0 rechercher sur le personnage de couleur qui provoque des Blancs assistant e0 la sce8ne ine9dite.A. Bellemere
