Erykah Badu Gets Naked in Flaming Lips’ ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ Video


After Erykah Badu joined forces with rockers the Flaming Lips for their all-collaborations album, The Flaming Lips and Heavy Fwends, it’s no surprise that their union would make major headlines. They recorded a cover of an old folk song titled “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” — Roberta Flack also famously sang a version of the track. Now the accompanying visuals for the song could very well land at the top of NSFW video lists.

In the George Salisbury-directed clip, the Flaming Lips members play their various instruments in slow motion while someone who looks exactly like Erykah Badu — her sister Nayrok — bares all, showcasing her naked body as she moves about in a bathtub and covers herself in glitter, blood and an unidentified white substance.

Due to Erykah and Nayrok’s striking resemblance to one another, viewers could easily mistake the naked woman smothering her body in weird liquids as the “Next Lifetime” singer herself stripping down to nothing. Perhaps that’s the point, considering no disclaimer came with the video’s premiere.

Witness the intensity unfold below.
