“Honey” singer, Erykah Badu, is sitting pretty at the top of the charts, as her “New Amerykah” CD has entered the Billboard 200 at #2, coming in right behind Janet Jackson and yielding sales of 124,000. Next up for Erykah is appearing on the cover of Essence Magazine’s April 2008 issue. To your right, you can see Erykah and her beautiful fro in all it’s splendor. Inside the issue Erykah covers the usual, her eclectic brand of music and fashion, as well as her past relationships and what it’s like being a single mom to two young children. Look for Erykah next to hit the road on a summer tour and you can look for this issue of Essence to hit newsstands on March 12th. And we must give Erykah an extra shout out for giving Janet a run for her money at the #1 spot on Billboard. As much as we love Janet here, we must give our sista Erykah credit for selling so well, and with very little promotion. Two sistas ruling the Billboard charts is definitely something to sing about and we love and support them both here.
