Erykah Badu to Release Mixtape, ‘You Caint Use My Phone,’ Next Week



It’s been over five years since Erykah Badu released her critically acclaimed album, New Amerykah Part Two. Today, Badu revealed in an interview with Noisey that she’ll be releasing a new mixtape, You Caint Use My Phone, next week.

Badu hinted at the new project with her “Hotline Bling” remix, which she released in the beginning of October. “I’m writing all the time,” Badu told Noisey, “but recently I got the bug back. When it comes, it comes, and I can’t force it, but recently I got it back with ‘Hotline Bling’ and all the other things I’ve been experimenting with.”

Also included in the interview is Badu’s stance on the Drake/Meek Mill beef, the Black Lives Matter movement, her upcoming one-woman show in Dallas, and more. Check out the first track from You Caint Use My Phone below and read the rest of the interview here.
