New Music: Erykah Badu – The Healer

Erykah Badu – The Healer (zShare)

I heard this last week on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide radio show but never got a chance to rip it. Fortunately someone got around to it because this is a killer track. I gotta admit, even though I loved Oh Word’s Baduizm parody, I’ve been a Badu fan since day one. I got my backpack strapped on tight and ready to go! This song, The Healer, produced by Madlib, is from Badu’s upcoming album Nu AmErykah which drops next month. It is a definite head-nodder and one of the best songs to drop this year so far.
