The Soulquarians: The Collaboration Between Questlove, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu & More

Back in 1998 it’s fair to say that The Soulquarians were a pretty formidable musical force. Featuring some of the most admired artists in the industry, including Questlove, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Bilal, the collective were responsible for the production of some of the finest albums of the era.
Things Fall Apart, Like Water For Chocolate and Voodoo were just some of the titles that they played a part in and although they fell relatively silent as a collective in around 2003, their legacy and individual talents still thrive today. Pitchfork recently put together this short film in honour of The Soulquarians, with some excellent animation from Concrete Jungle creator, Steven Cartoccio, and music from the Backwoodz Studioz favourite, Willie Green.

Miles Davis & Robert Glasper ft. Erykah Badu: Maiysha (So Long)

Sublime sounds here, as a new video surfaces from the excellent Robert Glasper project, Everything Is Beautiful. The album’s aim was to take on the music of Miles Davis and breathe new and contemporary life into it, with the help of artists like Bilal, Illa J, Laura Mvula and the neo-soul goddess, Erykah Badu. Ms. Badu is the main feature on the new video, as she brings her sultry vocals to a reinterpretation of the 1974 classic, Maiysha (So Long).
