Erykah Badu Is Out Her Mind ‘Just in Time’ for New Video
Erykah Badu is back with a new video that will leave fans dizzy and mesmerized. Part two of her split video for the 2010 track ‘Out My Mind, Just in Time,’ off the ‘New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)’ album, the slick, black-and-white, abstract short features the R&B diva sultrily contorting and seemingly defying gravity.
Co-directed by Badu with Coodie & Shike, the artistic video takes a minimalist approach, using dramatic chiaroscuro lighting to draw the viewers in to focus on Badu’s enthralling eyes and purposely displayed physical features as she slithers and rolls in a silk two-piece.
Whatever sensualism is channeled in the shoot, it is tinged with an intense, almost ominous tone. The editing and the slight speeding up gives it a surreal quality, as if Badu is Alice in Wonderland, falling down the rabbit hole. What do you think of the video?
