On Thursday, July 30, 2020 AC (After Corona), Erykah Badu will host an album streaming party for 22-year old producer, singer and songwriter Liv.e.
As Badu told the New York Times in Sunday’s Arts & Leisure cover story, she plans on sharing her new-found technical prowess and platform and supporting artists she has respect and love for.
“Now, I have entered a new creative space,” says Badu. I am building a new platform from the ground up. As an Entrepreneur, I build and fix as I go.”
She continues: “It is a living and breathing piece of architecture that will grow as my vision does. And now I have the opportunity to share my platform with artists with similar sensibilities.”
Badu put together a livestream project creating her own interactive streaming network to put on her ambitious Quarantine Concert Series: The Apocalypse. The series of three concerts married technology with Badu’s creative vision to give users an unmatched, first-of-its kind, intimate steaming experience that maintained the integrity of her live shows. It set a high bar, though a bar she always wanted others to join.
Enter Liv.e, Badu’s friend and protége, who shares a mutual fandom and love of mixing sounds and musical genres to make something unique. With her album Couldn’t Wait To Tell You… (In Real Life Records) coming Friday, Badu felt a good time to walk it like she talks it and team up with Liv.e.
“What better artist to highlight as an extension of what I am creating,” says Badu. “I’ve known Liv as family since forever. She was this young shy, creative girl who found her way into my heart. We graduated from the same arts high school years apart. Liv is of the same tribe.
“I can’t wait to see her do her thang.”
