The eclectic and quirky soul known as Erykah Badu brings beauty not only to her music, but to her Instagram as well. Having only joined the social media site in June of 2015, our ‘Black Women In Music’ honoree has blessed our timelines with some of the most bomb and unsurprisingly unique selfies we’ve ever seen.

From rocking her natural grey hair to close ups of her dramatic and stylish nose rings, we’ve gotten rare glimpses into the more personal side of the elusive singer. Erykah’s real and raw selfies inspire us to show off our beauty without worrying about the perfect angle or filter.

Here, we’ve listed some of the best flicks Erykah has posted on the ‘Gram. Let them touch your soul like they have ours.
