Taken from new mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone.
Erykah Badu’s But You Caint Use My Phone has arrived as an iTunes and Apple Music exclusive with a full release set to follow on December 4. Guests on the tape are kept to a minimum with former partner Andre 3000 making the only featured appearance. The pair’s new collaboration ‘Hello’ is their first since Badu appeared on Outkast’s ‘Humble Mumble’ in 2000.
According to a press release, But You Caint Use My Phone “expertly weaves Erykah Badu’s trademark soulful vocals with psychedelic soundscapes, hip-hop-inflected beats, smooth R&B, jazz, art-rock and found sounds into a new genre Erykah describes as TRap & B.” The project is produced entirely by Dallas newcomer Zach Witness.
