The world is in pain for many reasons, and the 'analog girl in a digital world', Erykah Badu, knows it. This is the inspiration for her new mixtape is called, 'Feel Better, World!..Love, Ms.Badu'. In the mixtape, Ms Badu has 'carefully and lovingly selected high frequencies for the soul', starting from Stevie Wonder and Eddie Kendricks to herself.
Badu's soulful vintage jazz, Afro-beat and funk will surely heal any needy soul, as the grammy-winner artist hopes. The message that Ms.Badu wants to send is clearly stated right at the bottom of the tracklist on Mixcloud: 'SOMEDAY WE WILL ALL BE FREE'. Her timing is perfect, as always.
With so many social and racial injustices happening around the world, 'love's in need of love today'. Ms. Badu's tracklist is symbolical: it starts with a call for knowledge and conscience - 'Come in to knowledge' and 'My people' are just examples moving towards darker tone with - 'When there is no sun' and 'Sack full of dreams'. What emerges in the end, though, is always hope and the track: 'Someday we'll all be free'.
Erykah Badu's mixtape actually brings her promise to life: good music can heal anything.
So go on, and press play and Feel Better, World.
FEEL BETTER, WORLD! ... LOVE, MS.BADU by Erykah She Ill Badu on Mixcloud
