When I first heard Erykah Badu’s cover of Drake’s Hotline Bling, I decided right there that I would purchase her mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone. Its thematic and funky R&B is the coolest sound I’ve listened to in a while. Never mind that Badu is one of my favorite singers. Yes I’m biased, but I know good music, so feel free to not be steered wrong by my recommendations. Listen to one of my favorite songs off the mixtape below. It’s titled Phone Down; other favorites include: What’s Yo Phone Number?, I’ll Call U Back, and Hello.
I like this song because it addresses something our society struggles with – putting the phones down. Respect is HUGE to me and I believe that you can gauge the amount of respect your partner has for you by the amount of undivided attention he or she pays you. Badu knows what’s up. 😉
