20 years ago, Erykah Badu dropped her debut project, Baduizm and gave us all an album that would stand the test of time; it really was/still is amazing. Also, for the last 20 years, she’s been giving fellas (i.e. Andre 3000, Common, The D.O.C., etc.) all the feels with her feminine wiles, aka “Baduizm”. Again, it is amazing.
On Thursday night, Essence honored Ms. Badu at their annual “Black Women in Music” event. Erykah told HipHollywood the honor felt like a “dream”, “It’s just a beautiful thing to be able to express myself in the way that I do, with no barriers, and take my time and create as I go,” the Grammy award-winning artist told us. And men like Master P, Mario and Anthony Hamilton couldn’t help but fawn over the legendary singer calling her things like incredible, amazing and mesmerizing.
Solange was on hand to present Erykah with her award and gushed over the “Tyrone” singer as well. But, it just wasn’t Solo who was enamored. HH spoke with Yara Shahidi, BiBi Bourelly and more who couldn’t help but sing the praise of Badu. Take a look at our coverage from Essence Black Women in Music below.
