Erykah Badu Makes “Hotline Bling” Even More Awesome

Think back to Drake’s “Days In The East,” in which he casually dropped having tea at Erykah Badu’s home, something the rest of us could only dream about. Now Badu has returned with a track of her own, flipping Drizzy’s “Hotling Bling” and making it her own in true Badu fashion.

Thankfully there’s more to come, as she prepares to deliver a brand new mixtape titled But You Caint Use My Phone, a subtle nod to “Tyrone.” Check out her version below and let us know if you’re feeling her spin on it.
