Watch This: Jump Up in the Air & Stay There FEAT. Lil Wayne - Erykah Badu

The unlikely pair, Erykah Badu and Lil' Wayne, come together to take you on a psychedelic journey of purple and grey. Erykah rocks nicely-blended make up and a Michael Jackson 'fro, and Wayne swims through a purple haze of smoke. The video did the song justice by making me like it.
Erykah's second installment of her three-part New Amerykah series, Return of the Ankh. News is, the album will feature more live instruments and lyrics about love and romance. The title, New Amerykah, Part II: Return of the Ankh, tells fans that Erykah is going back to the style that made her famous in the late '90s; soulful and more easily understood.
I like how they included "Free Lil Wayne" subliminally at the end. If you didn't know, Wayne was supposed to go to jail three days ago, but his sentencing was pushed back.
