Audio Vision: Erykah Badu Hypnotizes On Fallon With 'Window Seat'

Thursday, March 4, 2010

With a top hat adorned on her crown, Erykah Badu glided into the soothing and peaceful "Window Seat"  for a lush performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, last night with great ease. It seriously doesn't take much to enjoy this song, as it has massive suction power due to the melodic piano's and crisp percussion. In turn, it didn't take much to find my calm center and become engaged when viewing this simple, yet effective performance that proves from all sides that "Window Seat" is one of 2010's best cuts.

Badu, of course, wears an outfit that only she could muster fashionably (if I wore those spandex pants, I'd be a fool in heat), and her presence (or that mojo she possesses) on stage just draws you in from the first moment that you don't want it to end when it does.  On Fallon, Badu sounds as if she was in an intimate bar setting, not on late night TV, and her pairing with The Roots on backup is always the perfect combination and something that should happen often. Bias? Maybe. But you can't tell me that this wasn't a smooth ride of a performance.

The Return of the Ankh will be in stores, March 30th.
