New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)
New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) is the 5th album release by Erykah Badu.
(Window seat) is the 1st single release from the album. The video had mixed reviews by so many people. Mainly, because Erykah appears nude on the streets of Dallas, Tx where JFK was assassinated some years ago. If people stop focusing on Erykah being naked, and really watch the video through it's entirety, let's just say more people will get the message.
(Widow seat) merely is taken from the concept of (group think.)
Group think: is a type of thought within a deeply cohesive in-group whose members try to minimize conflict and reach consensus without critically testing, analyzing, and evaluating ideas. During group think, members of the group avoid promoting viewpoints outside the comfort zone of consensus thinking. A variety of motives for this may exist such as a desire to avoid being seen as foolish, or a desire to avoid embarrassing or angering other members of the group. The term is frequently used pejoratively, in hindsight.
They play it safe, are quick to assassinate what they do not understand. They move in packs ingesting more and more fear with every act of hate on one another. They feel most comfortable in groups, less guilt to swallow. They are us. This is what we have become. Afraid to respect the individual. A single person within a circumstance can move one to change. To love ourself. To evolve".
Some people often wonder what happen to the head wraps Erykah use to rock.
"Art is my religions. You don't see the head wraps anymore because I am the head wrap."
Erykah lives in Dallas, Tx with her 3 children Seven, Puma Sabti , Mars Merkaba
Her charity organization, Beautiful Love Incorporated Non Profit Development (B.L.I.N.D. 501c3), provides community-driven development for the children in the community through music, dance, theater and visual arts.
In the publication VegNews Magazine, July ~ August 2008
Erykah Badu was quoted: "Vegan food is soul food in its truest form. Soul food means to feed the soul. And to me, your soul is your intent. If your intent is pure, you are pure".
(Erykah is a Vegan)
