Erykah Badu Shines at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert: Watch

50

Erykah Badu stopped by NPR Music for a beautiful Tiny Desk Concert on Wednesday (Aug. 15). The jazzy performance incorporated Badu's signature blend storytelling and humor while she sang through "Rimshot" and "Green Eyes."

Rocking dreads and colorful makeup, Badu launched into a spiritual set. From 1997's Baduzium, the steady "Rimshot" references the sound made when a drumstick hits the metal edge a snare. Her next song, "Green Eyes," rolls through a story heartbreak as Badu's vocals soar over varied jazz arrangements from her talented seven-piece band.
