“See, you don’t want to fall in love with me,” drawls the inimitable Erykah Badu to her potential suitors in “Fall in Love (Your Funeral)”. “Prepare to have your sh*t rearranged the way I say,” she warns. “You’ve got to change jobs… and change gods,” she taunts. With a nod to the Notorious B.I.G.‘s classic line from Ready to Die‘s “Warning”, Badu lays the smack down, “There’s gonna be some slow singin’ and flower bringin’ if my burglar alarm starts ringin’.”

The second part of Erykah's bold, two part project carries her sound forward and upward into the space age. It is without a doubt a fantastic continuation of an already great album, with prestine and professional production that continues to surprise fans, while still giving them exactly what they're coming to Badu for.
