WBM Music: New Amerykah Part Two Album Review

New Amerykah is a great piece of art. Erykah Badu is embracing her self determination and rediscovering her identity in this new body of work.
She accentuates her inner strength and refusal to let a damaged relationship stifle her growth as an artist.

You can tell the lyrics show an inner conflict that many artists face in wanting to share their music, wanting to create yet feel the pressure the label and fans want or expect from them.

At the end of the day Erkyah truly sheds any masks and inhibitions, inevitably evolving, and putting out some of her best work. She uses a lot of live instrumentation that taps into Badu's emotional side by thematically focusing on romance and relationships, listen to the strings, harps, piano, drums. You feel every emotion she wants you to feel through out the album.

New fans will fall in love with Erykah and true fans will in love with her all over again.
