Erykah Badu

Universal Motown recording artist Erykah Badu, best known for her eccentric style and cerebral music, is an award-winning American soul singer and songwriter. Regarded as the Queen of Neo Soul, Badu’s sound—a concoction of soul, hip-hop and jazz—cannot be limited to a single genre.

Self-described as a "mother first," Badu is a touring artist, DJ, teacher, community activist and holistic healer. Her first album, "Baduizm," released in February 1997, was certified triple Platinum and spawned the singles "On & On," "Next Lifetime" and "Other Side of the Game." Since then, Badu has released several more studio albums, which have been met with critical acclaim and commercial success.
