erykah badu sings for money in times square

October 17, 2014

Erykah Badu has always been experimental in her sound, but recently the musician has been expressing this experimental nature in a series of random acts. This time, Badu takes herself to New York’s time square to become an undercover busker. However, singing anonymously, the singer is only able to make $3.60.

“In no way is this video a reflection of my feelings about homeless or unfortunate families nor individuals who have no other means of survival in our world,” Badu states. “Instead, this short film was shot w/ my iPhone and edited in iMovie for entertainment purposes only and serves as a personal ‘hustle’ experiment for me.”
