Dial that number back, and rewind the track. Over the summer, Drake set corners of the web ablaze with a vicarious, trap equivalent of white phosphorus, called ‘Hotline Bling’. Now, the high queen of neo-soul, Erykah Badu, has put her own spin on the track, and it’s even more intoxicating than Drake’s.
Hotline Bling But U Can’t Use My Phone is available to stream now, on Erykah Badu’s SoundCloud page.
