Livin' in a Nu AmErykah
Erkyah Badu has a new single, "Honey." And she has about four new nicknames, as evidenced by this just-released clip about the making of the song and her new 18-track album Nu AmErykah, the double-disc, each-sold-separately collection Universal Motown's prepping for a February 26, 2008, release. As Badu tells Billboard: "In taking on a project like this, I'm taking the responsibility to talk for my race and my planet." By any name necessary. --Robert Wilonsky
