Erykah Badu To Leak New Music, New Amerykah, Pt. II Teaser Video This Afternoon

Erykah Badu fans looking forward to the Freaq's upcoming follow-up to her 2008 smash New Amerykah Pt. 1: 4th World War would do well to turn their Internet dials to ErykahBadu.com starting in, oh, about 10 minutes or so (or, more specifically, at 3:33 p.m.), as, at that exact moment, Badu will use her site to "leak" a bonus track and a teaser video promoting her New Amerykah Pt. II: Return of the Ankh album.

It's even been verified on Badu's Twitter account. (Some world we live in, huh?)

The album, you surely recall, is slated for a March 30 release. So be sure to check Badu's site for an early look. Chances are, we'll be there too.

Who we kidding? We definitely will be. So... see you there?

Update at 3:29 p.m.: Badu just tweeted again. Now it looks like the leak will come at 3:33 p.m. Pacific time. So, no rush?
