Yes it is true. Remember when Badu walked through the Dallas, TX streets butt naked for her ‘Window Seat‘ video? Well she’s back with round 2 of the ‘birthday suit show down’. But this time, it’s her sister, Nayrok Badu bearing it all in their newly ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ video. The song itself is a remake of a 1957 folk song written by British political singer/songwriter Ewan MacColl for Peggy Seeger, who was later to become his wife. It’s remake is from the April 2012 of the Oklahoma psychedelic alternative rock band ‘The Flaming Lips’ Record Store Day collaborative double vinyl called ‘The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends’, and features Erykah Badu on the vocals, while the video, which also features Erykah and her sister Nayrok Badu. Combining both nudity and art, the Badu sister appear tastefully naked in the video. Yet have any of you seen the movie, ‘Think Like a Man’? Welll, try thinking like a man right now. LOL!
The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends also features collaborations with Bon Iver, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket, Ke$ha and more. A great album indeed.
