The neo-soul queen will make her Manila debut on October 14 this year. Tickets are already selling out in the USA and Europe leg of the tour, with General Admission costing up to P4,000 ++. While waiting for our turn, let’s revel in Erykah Badu’s music that’s just perfect for this rainy season. Put her songs on loop and cuddle up. Here are our top picks:

1. On and On

“Peace and blessings manifest with every lesson learned
If your knowledge were your wealth then it would be well earned
If we were made in his image then call us by our names
Most intellects do not believe in God
But they fear us just the same’’

2. Didn’t Cha Know

“Guess I was born to make mistakes
But I ain’t scared to take the weight
So when I stumble off the path
I know my heart will guide me back”

3. Back in the Day (Puff)

“Back in the day when things were cool
We used to meet up with these dudes
Then we’d roll out on hopes and truths
And would ride around the park till its after dark
Pumpin’ the trunk with the windows rolled up, puff
Well well well”

4. Afro Blue (with Robert Glasper Experiment)

“Two lovers dance face to face with undulating grace
They gently sway then slip away to some secluded place

Shades of delight cocoa hue
Rich as the night, afro blue

Dream of a land my soul is from
I hear a hand stroke on a drum”

5. You Got Me (with The Roots)

“When you out there in the world, I’m still your girl
With all my classes I don’t have the time for life’s thrills
So when you sweatin on stage think of me when you rhyme
And don’t be listenin’ to your homies they be leavin’ you blind”


For those nights when you have someone to cuddle with…

So In Love with You (with Stephen Marley)

“He said he’s really diggin’ me
I don’t know what to say
I can’t imagine why I feel so weak, say, say
That’s when he took my heart in his hands
And kissed it gently
He open up his lips then said this poetry
I’m in love with you, love with you”

Erykah Badu VS Everythang Tour 2017 AD, Live in Manila will be on October 14, 2017, at the Harbour Garden Tent, Hotel Sofitel Philippine Plaza. Volume Unit Entertainment produces the show, in co-production with World Wide Womb. Tickets are available on www.buytix.at/vuetix.
