But You Caint Use My Phone

So right now I’m lisScreen Shot 2016-03-24 at 4.48.57 PMtening to the Erykah Badu “But You Caint Use My Phone” mixtape. It is straight fire. So for those who don’t know, Erykah Badu is hands down my favorite singer/musician. Her music is always unique and has a quality you can’t find with any other artist, and if you do, its rare. Anyway. The first song I heard off the mixtape was “Hello” with Andre 3000. Disclaimer I was very under the influence when I first heard it so it was FANTASTIC!  So while in that moment, at the 1:17 mark, it gets really trippy just saying. The motif of the phone is clearly all throughout the music. You even here the “hello” she sings in “HI” in “Hello”. Truthfully, she and Andre 3000 need to do a whole album together it would be sure to change the game. Both of them have a smoothness about them that resonates in their music and they seem to connect and vibe so well together that it pulls you in. The mixtape reminds me of her Worldwide Underground with a little of the Baduizm albums. Very chill, laid back, with heavy 8O8’s. She also covers Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and Usher’s “U don’t have to call”. So next time you’re vibing, check out the mixtape on Spotify.
