#MusicMondays: Loving Badu’s Longest

I’ve been sitting on this blog post for a long time waiting for the right moment, but Erykah Badu forced my hand by releasing an NPR Tiny Desk Concert where she performs Green Eyes in its entirety. From loss to jealousy to lust to long-term partnership, Badu covers it all. Erykah Badu’s longest songs are her best songs. Debate Common, not me.

Baduizm – Otherside of the Game

Mama’s Gun – Green Eyes

Worldwide Underground – I Want You

New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) – Telephone

New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) – Out My Mind, Just in Time

It even holds true for her mixtape with Cel U Lar Device, but these songs from her studio albums are some next level music. Fun fact: Mama’s Gun is her longest studio album as well.
