When the term Neo-Soul was created, a genre that fuses jazz hip hop R&B, and gospel, Erica Abi Wright, or Erykah Badu wasa the forefront.

Since 1997, the Grammy award-winning Badu has sold almost 20 million albums worldwide and continues to reinvent herself – as an actress and a traveling DJ.


Here are three of my favorite Badu songs in no particular order:


Next Lifetime






Love of My Life (Ode To Hip Hop)


Today we salute Erykah Badu for Black Music Month.
