Erykah Badu introduced us to Sarah Bellam on Friday (June 24th), in the visual for “Maiysha (So Long)”, which is a track on Robert Glasper’s Everything’s Beautiful project. Badu wrote and directed the music video and also makes an appearance as the main character, the eccentric and slightly neurotic Sarah Bellam. Glasper backs her up as the role of her lover and keyboard player. Robert Glasper’s Everything’s Beautiful album is compiled of a lot of reworked Miles Davis songs. Badu always bring the heat creatively, this collaboration is pretty dope. The video definitely gives a 70’s type of jazz vibe with a comical touch, and of course the song is smooth, cool, and mellow, giving us nostalgic musical bliss. What else would you expect from Queen Badu?

The video dropped on Friday, June 24th @ noon, check it out below:
