Erykah Badu Covers Drake’s Hotline Bling


Image Courtesy Marc BaptisteAs Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” climbs the charts, Erykah Badu has released her own rendition of the song.

Badu’s seven-minute remix, titled “But U Cain’t Use My Phone,” has the singer adding her own lyrics. “You used to call me on my cellular device at night,” Badu sings over the beat, which samples D.R.A.M.‘s summer anthem “Cha Cha.” After leaving prompt instructions on her voicemail, the singer slows down the song and there’s even a sample of Andre 3000‘s “Forever-ever?” line from Outkast‘s single “Ms. Jackson.”

The song, which was posted on her official SoundCloud page, will appear on her upcoming mixtape, But U Cain’t Use My Phone.
