As a Black Friday treat, soul songstress Erykah Badu just released her new mixtape, But You Cain’t Use My Phone. Recorded in Dallas over the course of 12 days with producer Zach Witnessin, the mixtape – whose title references Badu’s 1997 hit “Tyrone” – is Badu’s first full-length project since 2010’s New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh).

Laced with over 11 tracks, one highlight from the record is the smooth ballad “Hello,” which reunites the singer with her baby daddy and former love Andre 3000.

Listen to “Hello” below – which we personally prefer to Adele’s similarly titled joint – and be sure to purchase But You Cain’t Use My Phone over on iTunes.
