Erykah Strips

Erykah Badu is back, with the sequel portion to 2008's New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, entitled New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh. No need to make the jokes about how she almost always includes her own name somehow epically in her album titles: it's already been done. Nonetheless, it's great to hear her returning to the well-crafted yet somehow still unhinged sound reminiscent of Worldwide Underground in 2003. My new thing extends, however, to include the video for first single "Window Seat", in which Badu strips down, gets 'shot' in JFK's assassination spot, then bleeds a word in ink that I've still not been able to decipher. Any help there is welcome. Since YouTube versions keep getting shut down, head to her official site to take a peek at her censored bod.
