Erykah Badu Coming to Kenya!

Yes, I know that Erykah Badu is not exactly a rock 'n' roll star but as I mentioned one time in the Kenya Rock Fans Facebook page, Erykah Badu and her one time love interest Andre 3000 (who will be starring in the new Jimi Hendrix movie) may not be rock stars but they definitely have the rock 'n' roll spirit! You can see this in Outkast's/Andre 3000's "Hey Ya" and also in one of Erykah Badu's music videos that I watched during the 'Sounds from 2000-2009' session at the December 1st Eye See Sounds Film Festival organized by The Nest. One particular scene from that cleverly done Erykah Badu video greatly resembles the 'Hey ya' concept, although the green color is replaced by pink. I must say this is my favourite part of the video (at around 2:40).

The music video was for the song "Honey" and was directed by Erykah Badu and Chris Robinson. It is set in a record store and various album covers are shown where Erykah Badu portrays the artist or artists on the album covers. One of the album covers is that of The Beatles' "Let it Be" (at around 1:55). The video also spoofs the cover of the January 1981 issue of Rolling Stone magazine which featured Yoko Ono and John Lennon (at around 3:40).

In the last few seconds of the video, the artwork from the 1976 album for the band Boston can be seen on the wall of the record store, just below and to the left of the artwork for Honey.

Not surprisingly, this music video won Best Direction at the 2008 MTV Music Video Awards and was also nominated for Best Editing, Best Cinematography and Best Special Effects.
