New Video: Erykah Badu – Mayisha (So Long) (With Robert Glasper & Miles Davis)
Erykah Badu presents r&b fans with a short film visual which she conceptualized, wrote and directed, for her Miles Davis tribute single “Maiysha (So Long)”. The song is a collaboration with Robert Glasper for the album “Everything’s Beautiful” which pays tribute to the legendary Miles Davis’ music by re-imagining songs of his through the artists interpretation.
The songs lyrics were written by Badu and were inspired by the song “Maiysha” by Davis. With the visual, Badu takes a look back at classic cariety shows from the 1950’s and 1960’s.
The album “Everything’s Beautiful” is out now following a release on Columbia Records to commemorate Davis’ 90th birthday. It features contribution from the likes of Bilal, KING, Ledisi, Stevie Wonder, and many more.
