Erykah Badu Greatest Hits Compilation on the Way
After more than 10 years in the business and five albums under her belt, Erykah Badu will be dropping her very first greatest hits album. Universal Music announced Monday (August 9) that Badu is among the artists launching their icon series later this month.
The collection will include 12 tracks from Badu ranging from her 1997 debut single ‘On and On,’ to work featuring collaborations with The Roots, and Common. The mother of three, released her latest album ‘New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh’ in March. The release was met with controversy after Badu stripped down naked for the video to her lead single ‘Window Seat,’ she has since been fined for the act.
Although this is the first greatest hits release from Badu, the entire series features collections from rock, pop and R&B albums from the likes Johnny Cash, James Brown, Janet Jackson, Neil Diamond and Tricia Yearwood. Universal’s icon series albums hits stores August 31.
