“Baduizm” by Erykah Badu is another all time favourite album of mine. Released on 11th February 1997, it was critically & commercially successful. “On & On”, “Otherside Of The Game”, “Next Lifetime” & “Apple Tree” are the singles from the album & 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. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
