<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/video-erykah-badu-fall-in-love-in-studio-performance"> My mind's playing tricks on me or something. Look back at my last few posts and a great majority of them have been of the non-Hip-Hop variety, give or take a few. And you know what? We're just going to keep the party going. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/erykah-badu">Erykah Badu's</a> New Amerykah Part Two still commands spins around my iPod these days mainly because it acts as a superb audio and mental masseuse.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/a-look-at-erykah-badus-new-amerykah-part-two"> It’s rare in the days of green screens and redundant themes that music videos are treated as a medium for storytelling. Providing the outlaw yin to <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/03/erykah-badu-window-seat-video">the original video’s</a> metaphorical yang, Erykah & Rick embark on a journey too big for one song to contain.

<a href="http://www.erykahbadu.com/"> As if the song itself wasn't already strong enough. On one level, it's simply soulful. Going one a notch higher, the tune can be taken as a mantra to evoke during those stressful times. It's androgynous with lines like "So, in my mind I'm tusslin’, Back and forth ‘tween here and hustlin’" that both Venus & Mars, outlaw and law-abiding citizen can relate to. But the visual created for it is a litany of adjectives. Entertaining. Sexual. Inviting. Visceral. And by its end, overwhelmingly powerful and thought-provoking, enough to cause a rewind. I would embed it, but we all owe Erykah a click-through and a trip to <a href="http://www.erykahbadu.com/">her site</a> because she's been generous & engaging, experimenting with the internuts in a variety of ways for the release of NE2.
