Is there anything more wholesome than being in the presence of Erykah Badu within an intimate space? While I have never been granted the distinct pleasure, I imagine that it’s a spiritually awakening experience for all parties involved. NPR recently invited the legend to perform for their Tiny Desk concert series and it’s honestly the only thing you should watch today. To start, Badu blesses the audience with an overview of her many spiritual aliases. Accompanied by a seven-piece band, she goes on to perform the songs “Rimshot” and “Green Eyes.”

This week, Badu also appeared alongside Taraji P. Henson in the trailer for What Men Want. The movie is out in theaters nationwide on January 11, 2019. Activate your email to vacation mode ASAP and catch a vibe from the video below.
