Janelle Monáe is not the only artist to bless the world with two official releases in the 2012. On this note, Erykah Badu has now revealed plans to release two albums this year. In a conversation with S2S Magazine, the eclectic singer is currently completing her forthcoming solo project and a collaborative album with her group, The Cannabinoids.
“I give myself room to breathe and grow and to procrastinate but to finish those projects is my next successful moment that I am seeking. I am working really hard this year. I don’t have much time to write but I can do it.”
While The Cannabinoids' name may reference the receptors in marijuana, Badu hopes that the listener will appreciate the group's digital hip-hop-influenced sound, which has helped reinvigorate her creativity. Sounds promising.
