More Year-End List Extravaganza!!! (Or: How The National Media Views Erykah Badu As The Only DFWd Artist Worth A Damn. Well, Her And The Jonas Brothers)
But first: Can we just take a second right now to recognize the greatness that is Erykah Badu?
New Amerykah Pt. 1: 4th World War is a force of a disc, and, rightfully, it's been getting recognized all over the map in days late as one of the year's best.
Today, a few more accolades for Ms. Badu:
- Spin's named the New Amerykah Pt. 1 the 12th best album of 2008. (via)
- Rolling Stone's called the disc the 19th best of the year. (via)
- Rolling Stone's also named Badu's "The Healer" the 43rd best single of the year. (via)
Ugh. Thank God for Badu. --Pete Freedman
