iTunes Editors’ Notes

Neo-soul’s most entertaining figures have been those who go their own way, willing to offer more than just allegiance to Stevie, Aretha and Curtis. On her debut, Baduizm, Erykah Badu made herself one of the late ’90s’ most irresistible singer-songwriters by attaching her slightly buttery, slightly vinegary pipes to jazz-informed, hip-hop-friendly grooves and an outlook at once spacey and grounded. “Other Side of the Game” took the point of view of a woman whose husband is deeply in the gangsta life; “Next Lifetime” displayed a sense of humor about Badu’s New Age beliefs by promising that reincarnation would eventually bring her together with a potential lover. Soon enough, she was not only a star in the R&B market, but a welcome presence on the female-centric Lilith Fair tour, whose own Sarah McLachlan doubtless recognized the need for Badu’s brand of funk.

a true classic that shouldn't be slept on

Much love

Erykah is one of the most talented artists out there. Her live performance is off the hook. Erykah! Please get back to !st Avenue!!

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...
