“Baduizm” by Erykah Badu is another all time favourite album of mine. Released on 11th February 1997, it was critically and commercially successful. “On & On”, “Otherside Of The Game”, “Next Lifetime” & “Apple Tree” are the singles from the album and are some of Erykah’s best songs, in my opinion. As celebrated as these songs are, this album has so many great album cuts too e.g. “4 Leaf Clover” & “Rim Shot (Intro)” that are just as well known as the singles. The album is R&B and neo soul but has jazz & hip hop elements too. However, “Baduizm” & Erykah’s artistry as a whole, has made her one of the most prominent artists in the neo soul genre, with this album being a blueprint.
