The song comes with a music video and is inspired by Badu’s 2010 release “Window Seat,” which was originally inspired by a duo named Matt and Kim.
“First time I heard an Erykah Badu song, I was probably like six. I was riding around with my uncle on 285 on the West Side,” the intro to “Erykah” hears. “And ‘On and On’ came on the radio, and I was like, ‘I ain’t ever heard or felt nothing like this before.’ This was my first introduction to like, what music could do for the body, for the spirit.”
Both Old and WowGr8 are set to release their sophomore album ‘Ghetto Gods’ this year and the project will mark their first release since their 2019’s project ‘Mirrorland.’
Watch “Erykah” above and stay tuned for new music and more!
