While the 2018 ESSENCE Festival songstress hasn’t blessed us with ay new music just yet this year, she did recently put her unique spin on the chorus from Tyler The Creator’s “See You Again,” and per usual, she not only made it her own, but nailed it. In a short video posted to her Instagram page, Ms. Badu shows love to Colombian starlet, Kali Uchis, who sings the chorus on “See You Again,” with a simple shoutout and rendition that has us counting down the days until ESSENCE Fest.
The Grammy Award-winning entertainer has also given a subtle nod to other rising and chart-topping young artists of today in recent months, including Janelle Monae, Nicki Minaj, LIV.E, Cardi B and Donald Glover.
Check out the video above and then be sure to grab your tickets to see Erykah Badu light up the stage, alongside over 40 more of the biggest names in music, at the 2018 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
