Erykah Badu Brings Back Sara Bellum In New Video With Robert Glasper
Back in May, Robert Glasper dropped a remake of Miles Davis’ 70s hit, “Maiysha” featuring none other than fellow Houston native, Erykah Badu. Now the video has been released.
Badu penned the lyrics as well as wrote and directed the visual accompaniment to this smooth record. Sara Bellum, one of Badu’s many personas, makes her appearance as a mercurial beatnik singer and Glasper plays her unnamed and annoyed boyfriend and bandmate.
The video starts off with Bellum giving a very interesting skit performance in her dressing room before Glasper breaks it up so that the band can do a live performance of the song.
“Maiysha (So Long)” will appear on Glasper’s upcoming album, Everything’s Beautiful. Watch Bellum and Glasper in action below.
