The worst thing about Drake‘s biggest hits is how they inevitably inspire dozens remixes. A majority of them will suck. However, of course the immortal ErykahBadu is that diamond in the rough. She dropped the remix to “Hotline Bling.”
Badu probably isn’t concerned about making a hit at this stage of her career, so that gives her space to lace the track with some weirdness and Baduizm. There’s some sci-fi effects, a hilarious voicemail and her classic voice (and an Andre 3000 sample if you listen closely) to remind you how long it’s been since we got a Badu album.
However, another bit of good news is that she’s got some shows coming up. Check out the short schedule below. She also has a mixtape called BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE coming soon.
