Many artists and creators have been crippled by this coronavirus pandemic. Tours have been postponed and public gatherings have been wiped out as a result of social distancing. This new normal has created a new landscape for creatives. Many have taken to social media as a creative outlet and an opportunity to reach their fans directly.
Erykah Badu picked up where DJ D-Nice left off with his set. Badu performed a live show with her band via a livestream. It was an interactive experience that cost one dollar and allowed her supporters to choose the songs she would sing. She went through her catalogue of hits, answered a few questions and provided some background on few of those songs. During the livestream she premiered a new song written by her music director RC Williams called ‘”Vibrate On” Check it out below.

Erykah Badu raised a few eyebrows when she announced a few weeks ago that she would be selling incense created from her cut up and burned underwear via her new online store. Badu’s World Market launched on February 20, 2020 at 2:22 pm. Her incense “Badu’s Pussy” sold out 19 minutes later.
Badu has been known to mesmerize men with her feminine wiles. She has now taken it to a whole new level. Her Badu’s World Market twitter page shared the good news.
Ms Badu is clearly pleased via her response on instagram.
The world is changing and soon Ms Badu will have the entire world under her spell. “Badu’s Pussy” is taking up space all up in 2020.
Erykah Badu has never been one to be boring. The 48 year-old song writer, singer, performer, visual artist and doula can now add something else to her resume. She will be an incense maker.
According to an interview she did with the British publication 10 Magazine this incense will be made with cut up pieces of her underwear. The product will be known as “Badu Pussy”. She will sell it on her new online store called Badu World Market.
There has always been a mystique surrounding Badu and her “feminine wiles”. There has been a distinct change in character with regards to the men who have been in her life. See Andre 3000, Common and Jay Electronica. There is a very definite “before Badu” and “after Badu” phase.
“There’s an urban legend that my pussy changes men,” she said. “The men that I fall in love with, and fall in love with me, change jobs and lives.”
If you are curious about how the creative process behind this will happen “I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them,” she shared. “Even the ash is part of it.” said Badu
I wonder if lighting this incense in closed quarters will hypnotize. We will see. –
