It's official - Erykah Badu is finally releasing a project after her highly-acclaimed 2010 New Amerykah Pt. II. In the event that you haven't heard about the Neo-soul queen's smooth remix of 'Hotline Bling', Ms. Badu has been dabbling with new projects.
Influenced by the melody of Drake's smash hit, the mixtape has been titled You Cain’t Use My Phone, set to release this 2015 Thanksgiving. Following up with this theme, each track is said to have a "phone" theme.. If this is anything like 'Tyrone', we're sure in for a treat.
“After I heard that song it inspired me,” she tells The Fader. “I was feeling it really and I started making the songs. No particular reason though." Erykah and Drake are evidently tight after this remix release, and she is quick and not hesitant to confirm. “We’re very good friends and we had some great talks. He’s an inspiration to me. Sonically he’s in a place where I want to be. It’s halfway between where I was and halfway to where I am now.”
