Your intrepid omgblog team is still smarting from an ill-fated trip to see Erykah Badu perform in Detroit a month ago. Long story short, we were jamming along with opening act N.E.R.D.’s dashiki-clad back-up dancers when a massive f*cking thunderstorm rolled in and wrecked the sound system. So while we wait for the August 12 make-up date, we can take solace in the news that Ms. Badu has shot a sequel to her thought-provoking ‘Window Seat’ video.
Miami rapper Rick Ross recently told MTV that the ‘Window Seat (Remix)’ video picks up right where the first ‘Window Seat’ vid left off — with Erykah reborn following an assassination attempt in Dallas’ Dealey Plaza. That’s when Ross arrives and takes her on another (all nude?) adventure:
“I had to come get the queen, they had her boxed up. It was only right. I was swerving through Dallas in that Porsche Panorama turbo. I had to slide up on her, scoop her up. We got back to business. We went on another caper.”
The clip will apparently act as a bridge to the video for “You Can’t Turn Me Away (Get Munny)”, the second single off her New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh album. Ross also revealed to MTV that Badu will direct the video for his song “Maybach Music 3”, on which she also sings.
