HomageCollage: Erykah Badu, ‘Honey’

🔊💜Today, January 11, 2008, Erykah Badu’s ‘Honey’ peaked at no. 40 on the US Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Chart. The song reached no. 80 on the Hot 100—a timeless production by 9th Wonder, included on Badu’s fourth studio album “New Amerykah Part One (4th World War).” Badu won a Grammy, and an MTV Award for the visual of ‘Honey,’ which was directed by Badu and Chris Robinson. The music video was a cultural and eclectic, and it homaged some of Badu’s influencers——Rufus, De La Soul, Minnie Riperton, Ohio Players, Diana Ross, Funkadelic, Labelle, Grace Jones, and more.
