Stream Erykah Badu’s Mixtape ‘But U Caint Use My Phone’

Erykah Badu is back on Black Friday with her new mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone. The project, inspired by a line from her 1997 hit “Tyrone,” marks her first full body of work since 2010’s New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh).

In addition to “Phone Down” and her remix to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” (renamed “Cell U Lar Device”), she is joined by André 3000 on “Hello.”

In collaboration with producer Zach Witness, the 11 tracks were written, recorded, and mixed out of Badu’s bedroom studio in Dallas over the course of 12 days. Each song makes reference to telephones and our reliance on staying connected.

But U Caint Use My Phone will be available to download exclusively on iTunes for one week and will be available for streaming via Apple Music. It will go to other digital retailers and streaming partners on Dec. 4.

On Sunday, you can catch Badu hosting the 2015 Soul Train Awards and performing “Phone Down” for the first time on television.
