Erykah Badu Celebrates Buduizm Milestone


R&B singer Erykah Badu celebrates the 21rst anniversary of her debut album Baduizm...


Yesterday Baduizm turnt 21.. acting too grown. This video OTHER SIDE OF THE GAME staring Andre 3000 was the 3rd single off the album and 3rd video I directed . It was done with a single camera in one take. I just choreographed the blocking. I love making one long single shot videos. (I.e.: window seat ) I was pregnant with our son 7 In this clip. He turns 21 this year. Later that same year , 1997, I directed a video with Outkast , DRE and @therealbigboi , featuring @ceelogreen from Goodie Mob, called IN Due TIME. My second album, LIVE, came out that same year on NOV. 18 , same EXACT date I had my first home birth with Seven Sirius Benjamin. I toured the entire year up until one week before his birth. This song was produced by me and @questlove along with tracking by @theroots. Mr. @jamespoyser wrote the music to this song as I sat next to him on the Piano stool. I couldn't read music so I had to keep saying , "that's not the chord it's bluer than that.. or that chord to sinister for this .. . Lol " That was the day we met in Philly. Our first musical date . We've been musically inseparable since then. I was living with Quest for a few weeks then. Time flys. I'm grateful . Wouldn't change one thing. I learned a lot. Still evolving. FAM , I thank you for your support. Cherish each day. - badu repost: @pachangapapi
