The Limelight: Erykah Badu – “Window Seat”

By Melva N. Lloyd

Erykah Badu has the internet buzzing with her newest video for “Window Seat”, the lead single from her upcoming album New Amerykah, Part II: Return of the Ankh

The video was released at 3:33 a.m. EST on Saturday and was filmed in downtown Dallas – no production crew, no closed set, shot guerilla style and the songstress was given one chance to complete the shoot. 

After receiving support and blessings from her family and friends she went for it.  Badu strips down to nothing as she walks the “grassy knoll” in her hometown of Dallas on St. Patrick’s Day;  She says via her Twitter page (@fatbellybella):

“…heard people yelling diff things @ me but i held my head up and kept moving.there were children there.i prayed they wouldnt b traumatized…”

Check out the video and let SMG know what you think.  Erykah Badu’s new album hits the shelves on Tuesday March 30, 2010.
