Usually we wouldn’t post a cover of a current chart track. Especially so if it was a cover of Drake’s made-for-internet meme monster ‘Hotline Bling’ … insert vine here …. however, when it is Erykah Badu sometimes exceptions have to be made.
Drake’s internet friendly ‘Hotline Bling’ has been transformed into a 7 plus minute epic featuring silky neo-soul groove that we just love and a trippy middle section full of Badu’s answer phone .. “If you’re calling to beg for some shit in general, press 4”.
The retitling to ‘Hotline Bling But U Can’t Use My Phone Mix’ references the superb ‘Tyrone’ and also an upcoming mixtape. New Badu. Now that is something to look forward to.
