Old School Friday: Erykah Badu
This week's theme for Old School Friday is neo-soul. Neo-soul is a musical genre that fuses contemporary R&B and 1970s-style soul with elements of hip-hop. As its name (new-soul) implies, Neo-Soul music is essentially modern-day soul music, with contemporary attitudes and sensibilities. It differs from contemporary R&B in that it's obviously more soulful, and it also tends to have deeper messages and meanings than R&B.
I look forward to traveling cyberspace to see what other artists are featured this week. I honed in on Erykah Badu. I imagine Erykah Badu has an entire wing of the Neo-Soul Hall of Fame!
