Erykah Badu performed an expert mashup of her Baduizm song "On and On" and Fela Kuti's "Sorrow Tears and Blood" on The Tonight Show Monday.

The performance found Badu and her band partnering with the Roots, who notably played on several Baduizm tracks (though not originally "On and On"). The musicians injected the steady R&B groove of "On and On" with the blaring horns and shuffling Afrobeat funk of "Sorrow Tears and Blood," while Badu delivered an engrossing vocal performance touched with a bit of humor as she

What It Is: A chakra reading with Soul Train Awards host Erykah Badu

Who Tried It: Hannah Kavy, Social Media Editor

Level of Difficulty: Not difficult at all! Maybe 3/10

Fans refer to her as the queen of soul, a style icon and a Grammy-winning artist, but Erykah Badu is also much more than that.

The musician, 46, also happens to be in touch with her spiritual side. After my experience with her, I’d even go as far as calling her my spiritual guru. From appearing in the documentary Holistic Wellness for the Hip Hop Generation to sharing her daily routine

Bring on the soul!

Fantasia Barrino, Faith Evans, Bilal and Mali Music go head-to-head in a freestyle session called “Soul Cypher” for the 2017 Soul Train Awards, and only Et has your first look.

Barrino brings down the house with a soul-stirring melody complete with a lyrical throwback to her 2004 debut album, Free Yourself. Of course, she's not the only powerful voice rocking the mic, as all four participants rise to the occasion, while the award show's host, Erykah Badu, mans the turntables. See the teaser in the video player above.

“I’ve never done the cypher before so going into it I was really nervous,” Barrino said to Et, during the taping of the song segment in Los Angeles last month. “But whenever you’re coming into the room with legends like Erykah Badu, Faith Evans, Bilal and Mali Music, it pushes you to want to do great and just enjoy that moment and watch them."

Erykah Badu Talks 20th Anniversary of 'Tyrone', Reveals Whether New Music Is On The Way (Exclusive)
"Tyrone" will always hold a special place in Erykah Badu's heart. 

Et's Denny Directo sat down with the 46-year-old singer for a Facebook Live interview on Tuesday, as she prepared to host the 2017 Soul Train Awards, and reflected on the 20th anniversary of her iconic song. 

"It just came together on stage actually. You know, the tradition of hip-hop, we just freestyle on stage a lot. And that song was actually freestyled. We used to play around on the rose in rehearsal... it was a real soulful kind of thing," Badu recalled. "I got on stage one night and gave [Norman "Keys" Hurt] the cue to play that, and the background singers would just look or nod, they understood, 'This is what we're going to do. Are you sure you want to do this?' And I'm like, 'Ok.'"

"I just started and it just turned into 'Tyrone,'" she shared. "It was on the

Erykah Badu Weighs In On Lil Peep's Death

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_8226xavx"]] Erykah Badu thinks Lil Peep's death is more complicated than it seems -- it's not just a cautionary tale about addiction, it's also a warning about mental illness issues for young people in America. As we first reported, police strongly suspect the 21-year-old rapper died of a fatal overdose. When we got Erykah Thursday in NYC ... she was extremely somber about the challenges youth face these days. As a mother of 3, she says kids, in general,

How Flying Lotus Made the Grossest Midnight Movie of the Last Decade

How Flying Lotus Made the Grossest Midnight Movie of the Last Decade
Most aspiring filmmakers who have sunk $400,000 of their own money into their first movie, and then have the chance to premiere it in a high-profile slot Sundance, do not want initial viewer reactions to be swift, violent and highly negative. They do not want reports that numerous audience members had walked, perhaps even ran, out of the theater in Park City during its first-ever showing, unwilling to tangle with some a movie that might be described "difficult," or "in-your-face," or "gross-as-fuck."

To be fair, however, most filmmakers are nothing like Steven Ellison,

Why 1997 Will Eternally Rule as an Amazing Year in Music

It's hard to believe that we were bopping our heads 20 years ago to songs like "I'll Be Missing You," "The Freshmen," and "Coco Jamboo," to name a few (shout out if you remember the last one well, like I do). It was a magical year for the music industry, in that 1997 was still a time where every single genre was invited to the table and brought back for seconds and thirds. Make sure you're hungry, because we're about to serve you some delicious throwback jams that will leave you full - and jonesing for that old CD player you left at your parents' house years ago. In the mid-'90s, we saw a huge decline in what is considered "pop" music as the grunge and hip-hop scene made its way to the top of the charts and left the pop princes and princesses in the dust.

Now's Your Chance to Get Into Sza Before She Completely Blows Up
Image Source: Getty / Frederick M. Brown Neo-soul singer Sza released her debut studio album, Ctrl, earlier this month, and in my eyes, it's already one of the best of the year. Sza sings about things every young woman can relate to: being young, being a woman, being the other woman, owning your sexuality, being insecure, falling for f*ckboys, trying to get over said f*ckboys - the list goes on and on. You may recognize her voice (which is raspy, lilted, and sounds like it's dripping in honey) from Rihanna's "Consideration" or her own 2014 Ep, Z. Her lead single, "Drew Barrymore," became such a hit that the actress shared an Instagram of herself singing along and made a cute cameo in the official video. If you haven't yet familiarized yourself with the lyrical genius that is Sza, here's your chance to get to know her before her career completely

Solange Knowles’ 2017 Met Gala Style: ‘Sometimes I Get It Right, Sometimes I Get It Wrong’

Solange Knowles’ 2017 Met Gala Style: ‘Sometimes I Get It Right, Sometimes I Get It Wrong’
Solange Knowles‘ wardrobe is just as unique as she is, packed full of super saturated primary colors, bold, architectural silhouettes and avant-garde detailing. Which is why this year’s Met Gala theme — honoring Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo’s signature sculptural, body-warping aesthetic — was practically tailor-made for the risk-taking singer.

So, of course, Knowles is going to bring her cool style to the Metropolitan Museum of Art steps tonight and interpret the theme in her own way. In fact, as she explained recently during an interview at the Reebok Classic Leather event during Coachella, she’s looking to Studio 54 legend

Purple Reign: How Prince Continued to Dominate Pop Culture 1 Year After His Death

Purple Reign: How Prince Continued to Dominate Pop Culture 1 Year After His Death
On April 21, 2016, the world suddenly lost Prince Rogers Nelson and, to be honest, we’ve never quite been the same. From the hilarious faces the 57-year-old delivered during the Bet Awards to kicking Kim Kardashian off stage to his uncanny ability to blend social justice and music during pivotal moments like the 2015 Baltimore protests, few superstars remained relevant like Prince. Even one year after his unexpected death due to an accidental opioid drug overdose in his Minnesota home, Prince’s influence still reverberates. Here’s a look back at the year since his death and how his legacy lives on.

April 2016: President Obama, along with the rest of the world, mourned the death of Prince by calling him “a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer,” according to Rolling Stone.

May 2016: Shonda Rhimes used Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and “Delirious” on two of her hit ABC shows, Grey’s Anatomy
