Erykah Badu: But You Caint Use My Phone

Since releasing her seven-minute take on Hotline Bling and another track “Phone Down,” her R&B highness Erykah Badu has had us waiting impatiently for her mixtape “But You Caint Use My Phone”—for which every song is related to the device that keeps us connected (or not). The Hotline Bling remix is renamed “Cel U Lar Device,” there’s a cover of New Edition’s “Mr Telephone Man” and former partner André 3000 guests on the last track “Hello.” This creative exercise of a mixtape is available today, though only on iTunes/Apple Music at the moment, and will make its way to other streaming platforms on 4 Dec 2015. Follow Badu’s advice on Twitter and listen to the whole thing in its proper order.
