iTunes Review

One of contemporary R&B’s free radicals, Erykah Badu tossed the “neo-soul” tag long ago to focus on her unique vision. If Part One was a reaction to the world at a crossroads, Part Two looks inward, using underground hip-hop, groovy jazz, funk, and psychedelic touches as vessels. “Turn Me Away (Get Munny)” flips the Junior M.A.F.I.A./Biggie collabo into a slinky celebration. “Love” and “Umm Hmm” skillfully bridge the analog and digital worlds to strip away issues of the heart. “Window Seat” stacks another hit on the pile; it’s a tale of a woman simultaneously searching for escape and commitment. And after recording the greatest jilted-lover diss in “Tyrone,” Badu again packs heat with “Fall In Love (Your Funeral).” But the album’s best part is when Badu's locked in a groove, channeling an inner monologue that’s one of the most compelling sounds in R&B. In the quest for New Amerykah, Erykah Badu captains the ship, pushing away from the dock into soul and hip-hop’s uncharted waters. Come along for the ride. New Amerykah Part 2: Return of the Ankh comes with the bonus track “Jump Up In the Air and Stay There,” featuring Lil’ Wayne and Bilal.

She grew up listening to '70s soul and '80s hip-hop, but Erykah Badu drew more comparisons to Billie Holiday upon her breakout in 1997, after the release of her first album, Baduizm. The grooves and production on the album are bass-heavy R&B, but Badu's languorous, occasionally tortured vocals and delicate phrasing immediately removed her from the legion of cookie-cutter female R&B singers. A singer/songwriter responsible for all but one of the songs on Baduizm, she found a number 12 hit with her...
