“You’ve reached the Erykah Badu hotline.”
Erykah Badu, one of Music & Other Drugs favorites, has returned with something new to groove to. Erykah has graced us with a cover and remix of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” The track opens up with Erykah singing, “You used to call me on my cellular device.” In that instant, we at Music & Other Drugs knew we were in for a treat. She perfectly entitles the song “HOTLINE BLING BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE MIX.” The “U CAINT USE MY PHONE,” was made popular by Badu in 1997 with the release of her Live album in the song “Tyrone.” In true Erykah Badu form, she makes this song her own. Badu experiments with many sounds and tempos on this track and it is perfection. Erykah Badu’s voice lays perfectly on this track. She even adds humor in this track at the 3:05 mark, and then slows the track down, and in Erykah Badu fashion, she breaks it down for us. Erykah Badu is in the works of a forthcoming mixtape But U CAINT USE MY PHONE, and Music & Other Drugs are anxious to get our hands on new Badu material. Check out the newest “Hotline Bling” cover & remix “HOTLINE BLING BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE MIX” below.
