erykah badu: window seat!

March 28, 2010

Erykah Badu is  one of my favorite artists. While her newest material has not been as accessible as her first two albums, I still get into her. Her first single from her new album New Amerykah Part II (Return of the Ankh) is Window Seat. This song is reminiscent of old school Erykah, very chill and soulful. I like it.

I did not expect this video, though! It’s great. She doesn’t really do anything, but at the same time she does everything. She explains the video was shot guerilla style, and then they ran like hell after it was finished filming. No actors, no closed set. So she just walked around this city, stripping, in front of strangers until she on the ground, completely naked. I love her. According to her, this video is about groupthink, a concept she has been going on and on (get the pun?) about on her Twitter for the past week or so.
