After five years of studio silence, Erykah Badu returns (sort of) with an old school mixtape nothing short of greatness. The “Feel, Better World!” release actually features the classics of James Brown, Eddie Kendricks and Earth, Wind and Fire. The nearly 90-minute vintage soul, jazz and funk-infused playlist takes us back to the roots of real music, creating an uplifting collection of musical soul food.
Badu stated on her Mixcloud page:
“ALL OVER THE GLOBE…KEEP WALKING TALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS. SOMEDAY WE WILL ALL BE FREE. THE WORLD IS IN NEED OF HEALING…. I CAREFULLY AND LOVINGLY SELECTED HIGH FREQUENCY TONES FOR THE SOUL…. PLEASE LISTEN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.
LOVE, ms. badu”
With the current racial tensions going on today, Badu’s compilation is a welcome expression of hope.
