rundown of e. badu ‘honey’ video

Last week i posted about the latest bangin’ video for ‘Honey’ from the inimitable Erykah Badu video and her replication of my Minnie’s Perfect Angel (1974) cover:

(borrowed from soulbounce)

…and, if you were waiting for the rundown matching up the original album covers with badu’s interpretations, wait no longer, Soulbounce has you covered. Scope out the rest.

Also, the street beaters at squarerootz have the latest word from Ms. Badu’s camp on where’s she’s been and what she’s been into since the Worldwide Underground LP. Regarding what made “Honey” an irresistable first single for New Amerykah, she says

“Honey” is a track produced by 9th Wonder. 9th Wonder is wizard when it comes to the drums and the bass. I think it’s really a radio-ready song. Honey is about a lover who I’m chasing by the name of Slim who I think is “so sweet that sugar gotta long way to catch him”. It’s nostalgic and it has a nice, funky, old school sound.
