Jesse already mentioned it in his review of Erykah Badu's Saturday night performance at the Palladium, but what the heck--seeing is believing, you know. So, on that note, check out the above video for Badu's new Web-only track off of New Amerykah Pt. 2: Return of the Ankh. The clip debuted on Badu's Web site on Friday afternoon at 3:33 p.m.
It's trippy as hell--Badu herself refers to the clip as an Erykahlidoscope, if that explains the aim at all. But also kind of adorable: Badu clearly had a blast filming this one, as her smiles throughout show.
Also, for kicks, in case you missed it, check out Badu's "halftime" performance of Carole King's "You've Got A Friend" from Saturday night's NBA All-Star festivities. It starts off so-so, but definitely improves as it goes on.
