The unquestioned Queen of Neo Soul, Erekah Badu was an R&B superstar that was more of a throwback to the sultry chanteuses of the past as opposed to her contemporaries. Badu was not just a soulful Neo-Soul singer as she could effortless switch to Jazz or Hip Hop, and she had a broad appeal to those fans. Badu is still recording and her story isn’t yet written. It will be interesting to see how her career is perceived over time.
