Erykah Badu talks new music projects, possible Jay Electronica collaboration | Music News


In an interview with the Huffington Post, soul maven Erykah Badu shined light on a number of topics, including her next album and a potential collaboration with her youngest daughter’s father, Roc Nation MC Jay Electronica.

Having recently released a funky, self-titled album with supergroup Rocket Juice & the Moon — a hodgepodge of artists including Badu, Blur frontman David Albarn, Fela Kuti‘s longtime drummer Tony Allen and legendary bassist Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers — the Texas-bred singer says she’s also prepping an album with her other, even bigger group (this one has nine members), The Cannabinoids, due the last quarter of this year.

Badu said her next solo album is also due at the end of the year, but didn’t offer many details on the project. She did entertain the idea of including an Electronica collaboration on the new joint, but says the two haven’t yet created the right song.

“We’ve done a lot of songs together, but sometimes you don’t like it or it doesn’t feel quite cohesive yet, but we’ve been working on it,” she said. “We don’t have any plans, that kind of stuff just happens.”
