Erykah Badu Invites Bilal & Lil Wayne To ‘Jump Up’

I don't pretend to understand everything that Erykah Badu does. I just know that for my trust in her vision, I am always rewarded, often much more than I ever expected. So when "Jump Up In The Air and Stay There" was leaked at the listening session for New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, I was skeptical, but intrigued nonetheless. After listening to it repeatedly over the past weekend, I actually really like it. Erykah's eclectic, Southern wiles are the perfect lightning rod for which to bring this melange together. Does a track with her, Bilal, and Lil Wayne really work? Yes, it really does. Especially since I distinctly remember a time when Wayne wasn't so grating to my nerves. Do yourself a favor and trust Erykah. Or don't. Because as she eloquently says "I don't give a f**k." She'll bring the funk anyway. [H/T: PBB]

  1. I have been cranking this all weekend. Wow Ebadu and D'Angelo are starting the Monday off right.

  2. She can do no wrong in my book.

  3. lil wayne isn't grating because he sounds a little like a young andre 3000 on this song. that, and the fact that he's not crying his rhymes. i can dig it.

  4. I am loving this song...
    But Wayne's verse wasn't too appealing to me....With out without him this song would still be a banger.

  5. why is her music getting worse every day hm..... maybe no one wants to make music with her anymore while she fucking around so sorry for her lol lol lol lol biatch

  6. I'm sorry but this SUUUUUUUCKS!!!

  7. I liked it! Hmmm I could have done without Lil Wayne's verse he always sounds like he is rapping a nursery rhyme.

  8. The first word that came to mind when I listened to this was cacophony, but that isn't a bad thing. I LOVED IT. But then again I'm partial to ANYTHING with Bilal...
