I had the pleasure of seeing Erykah Badu live in concert last night at the House of Blues where she performed her classic album “Baduizm” in its entirety! She threw in some of her other hits like Tyrone, Window Seat, and Bag Lady as well. During her amazing nearly two hour set she gave us a few insights into the making of one of the greatest R&B albums of all time. She confessed that an artist that inspired her while making Baduizm was singer Brandy! She even broke out into Brandy’s classic “I Wanna Be Down”. Who woulda ever thought that the Neo Soul queen was inspired by bubble gum R&B princess Brandy? If you ever get the chance to see Erykah in concert you absolutely MUST go! The picture I included above was taken by me as she got off the stage and shook hands and posed for pictures with audience members. What iconic artist does that these days?! Love her!
