Miss Badu says she has whole family involved in the new project New Amerykah, Part Two: Return of the Ankh which comes out on March 30th.
“They do all kinds of things,” Badu, who turns 39 this month, said of her clan. “The whole family. My sister sings background for me. My brother is on the road with me; he does merch. He also writes. He’s helped me write a couple songs. He was a writer on ‘Danger’ and a whole bunch of different things. My mother has given me pointers on what to do and what not to do — mostly what not to do. My children, Mars is gonna be 1. If she bobs her head [to one of my songs], I know it’s the joint. Puma sings with me; she’ll be on this album. Seven is a lot like Andre 3000, his father. If he gives the nod of approval, then I know it’s the joint. He may be playing drum machine on this album too.”
