Erykah Badu & Whodini Vs Kanye West – Trill Friends

Two decades ago, Erykah Badu propelled herself into the hearts and minds of many a music fan with tracks such as “On & On”, and doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of relenting if her latest post on her official Soundcloud page is any indication.

This time round, the righteous singer-songwriter has taken on Kanye West’s latest offering “Real Friends” and made it better. “Trill Friends” is a simple cover, but Badu’s sultry vocals and ability to portray a story through her intonation and sheer ability make this more than just a run of the mill copy of West’s original.

A massive 192,000 plays and almost 10,000 likes in less than 24 hours can’t be wrong, and here’s hoping for more from Badu in 2016.
