Erykah Badu sent a strong message in the music video for “Window Seat,” the lead single from her soon to be released album “New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh”. While Badu feels “liberated” now, she admits to being petrified when the actual video shoot, including a nude scene, took place. “I was petrified while shooting this video … but liberation began to set in,” Badu told fans on Twitter Saturday, March 27. “I conquered many fears in that few moments . i am greatful.” According to Badu, the video was completely real, with not a single adjustment, even when she strips down to nothing towards the end. “No closed set . no actors . everything was real,” says Badu. “window seat video notes: had intended to direct this vid alone.” Watch Erykah Badu’s video for “Window Seat” HERE on Singersroom. “New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh” hits stores Tuesday, March 30.
