Erykah Badu dedicates ‘Phone Down’ to Drake
Queen of Neo-Soul Erykah Badu and King of feelings, Drake have had a musical appreciation for a while. After her popular take on his ‘Hotline Bling’, Erykah released her new original song, ‘Phone Down’ – which, as she tells Soundcloud, “this ones for Aubrey...”
Drake and Badu seem to have been musical muses for one another for a while. Drake first showed Erykah love in Days in the East, where he gushed about their tea date: ‘Remember one night I went to Erykah Badu house, she made tea for me’.
‘Phone Down’, is from Erykah’s up and coming project, 'BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE', set for release at the end of November. The title of the project is taken from her 1997 single, Tyrone – the subject of phones and relationships isn’t a new one.
