Erykah Badu releasing two albums in 2012 | Music News

A critically-acclaimed “Queen of Neo Soul,” Erykah Badu has revealed plans to release two albums this year.

Erykah is a pioneer in pushing boundaries when it comes to musical expression and her future album endeavours with The Cannabinoids sees her venturing into more grittier areas of hip-hop and experimenting with funkier aspects of soul.

Badu’s forthcoming project with The Cannabinoids — an eclectic group of musicians and producers hailing from her hometown of Dallas, Texas — will be the collective’s first official major release as a group. In addition, she is also working on her own solo project set for release later this year.

“I give myself room to breathe and grow and to procrastinate,” Badu tells S2S Magazine, “but to finish those projects is my next successful moment that I am seeking.”

Stay tuned.
