Universal Motown recording artist Erykah Badu, best known for her eccentric style and richly textured music, is a four-time Grammy award-winning soul singer/songwriter. Regarded as the “First Lady of Neo-Soul”, Badu’s sound—a concoction of soul, hip-hop and jazz—cannot be contained to a single genre. Baduism, Badu’s highly acclaimed debut album went triple platinum and along with “On & On”, won Grammy awards in 1998. In the spring of 2010 Badu released her fifth studio album, and second installment of a two-part New Amerykah series. Rolling Stone named New Amerykah, Part 1: Fourth World War one of the year’s best albums. New Amerykah Part 2: Return of the Ahnk made its debut at number five on the Billboard 200 charts.
