Why See Erykah Badu?
THE FIRST LADY OF NEO-SOUL
Known as the Queen of Neo-soul, this influential soulstress's chart-topping singles have won Grammy Awards and hit the top of the charts since her first release 'Baduism' in 1997. Likened to Billie Holliday, her work takes elements from R&B, hip hop and jazz and has been credited with the rise of the neo-soul subgenre. Never one to shy from controversy, in 2010 her now iconic music video for Window Seat saw her walk through the streets of her native Dallas discarding her clothes until naked.
A new album is rumored to be in the works, but for now, the latest Erykah release was 2015's mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone, which critics met with praise for its loose, off-the-cuff jaziness.
Performance date: 28 December 2018
