It appears Erykah Badu is damn-near never out of surprises. Moments ago, Ol’ Green Eyes took to her Soundcloud page (something certainly worth monitoring these days) to share another one of her “trap&b”recalibrations. This time she takes on PARTYNEXTDOOR and Drake’s slow-stirred and sensual collaboration “Come And See Me”; a perfectly sedated sonic specimen for Badula to do her damndest, lilting, crooning and ad-libbing affectionately over the Toronto duo’s hit. The track comes as yet another sneak-released remix from Miss Badu’s ever-expanding catalogue, having recently redone cuts by Wintertime and Kanye West. You can stream the latest Erykah Badu re-freaq below, just be sure to keep that ear to the ground as we never know when she’ll strike again. You can also catch Badu on the road this summer, the dates for which are listed just under the player.
