The best parts of Erykah Badu‘s album New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh, besides the music, have been the visuals she’s attached to each track. We’ve seen animation (“Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long”), some Bonnie & Clyde type action (“Window Seat” remix), provocative public service announcements (“Window Seat”), and some home videos (“Fall In Love”).
So, what possibly could the Dallas native do to top all of that? Well, interpretive dance, of course. That’s what Badu serves up with her latest clip, for the track “Out My Mind Just In Time (Movement 1),” where she does her best Alvin Ailey Dance Company impression–complete with pop locking. Yup.
I can’t lie–she kinda lost me with this one, since it reminded me of something I’d see from a praise mime, and if you know me, you know I’m not fond of their performances. Sigh.
It’s a short clip, and I like the song, so I got through it. Take a look after the jump and let us know what you think.
