Erykah Badu

By Laila Barboza 

Erykah Badu is an artist of many genres. She isn’t so widely known, but she is an award-winning singer and songwriter. She illustrates her songs in a way that they are so beautifully told. I agree that she is one of the most gifted rhythmic singers and songwriters. She’s known as “the queen of neo-soul; a mix of modern soul and R&B with hip hop, jazz, pop, African music, and more influences. Erykah’s music style draws from 1970s soul and 1980s hip hop. 

A beautifully spiriting being with such a talent for music, you wouldn’t believe she’s shy of her 50s!
