The rollout for Erykah Badu’s latest mixtape has started to come full force with her releasing the song “Phone Down,” which will be on the tape. The song is dedicated to Aubrey in the description on Apple Music and has laid the foundation from the sounds we should expect on the forthcoming mixtape titled You Cain’t Use My Phone.
She repeats the line, “I can make you put your phone down” giving off an infectious bounce that should shoot this song somewhere into your favorites out right now.
Earlier this month Fader was able to catch up with Badu to get details on the album to which Badu responded: “I think it’s a whole new frequency for the planet and I just wanted to do it because it’s inspiring me to write my new album, it’s kind of like the buffer in between,” she says. She also said the mixtape should be arriving Thanksgiving weekend.
