EarthGang has released a new single paying tribute to Erykah Badu. It is simply called “Erykah” and comes with a playful music video made by Neri. Watch EarthGang jet ski and chill on the beach in the following clip.
EarthGang opens “Erykah” with a monologue about the first time they heard Badu’s music. The song seems to sample Badu’s song “Window Seat” from her 2010 LP New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh.
“Erykah” follows EarthGang’s May single “Aretha”, which is dedicated to the Queen of Soul. This track was produced by Yudu Gray and Olu from EarthGang. It also came with visuals staged by Neri.
