Robert Glasper's new album, Everything Is Beautiful, consists of 11 reworked versions of Mile Davis songs. An interesting method of musical creation of such legendary magnitude deserves a stellar line-up of talent for certain. The track listing consists of artists such as Bilal, Phonte, Erykah Badu, Stevie Wonder, etc. The world is lucky enough to be able to hear the track with Erykah Badu now, which is a rework of "Maiysha" from 1974.
Robert Glasper is no stranger to working with big names. He's worked with Kendrick Lamar, Mos Def, J Dilla, and Kanye West in the past. Being a master of anything related to jazz or r&b it was only a matter of time until Erykah Badu came into the picture. The team wanted to create something different and unique and decided on a bossa nova version of the track. This version will be sure to make your mind wander and you're find yourself in some sort of spell.
