Why Erykah Badu ain’t afraid of nobody
Sisters, how y’all feel? Twenty years ago, Erykah Badu (@fatbellybella) had an epic year: she released Baduizm and Baduizm Live -- which gave us all the ultimate f*&kboy anthem, “Call Tyrone” -- and gave birth to her son, Seven. Badu remembers those moments, plus sings us a hint of what’s coming when she hosts the 30th anniversary of the Soul Train Awards and why she can go from 0 to 100 real quick. Bonus: Badu gives Charli a step-by-step guide on where she can find stillness.
