Marc BaptisteErykah Badu has released the official music video for her new song, “Maiysha (So Long).”
Badu directed the visually enthralling video, which begins with a spoken word monologue by the artist herself and a scene in which she showcases her comedic acting chops. The actual song starts midway into the full-length video.
“So long. That’s what she said. So long,” she croons while donning a chic black beret and long gloves.
“Maiysha (So Long)” is featured on Robert Glasper‘s new album “Everything’s Beautiful,” and is based on the Miles Davis song titiled “Maiysha.” The lyrics for Badu’s version were written by Erykah herself.
The soul singer is slated to perform at the 2016 BET Music Awards this Sunday.
