Published Oct 02, 2015Erykah Badu has a mixtape called BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE on the way, and as a preview of the collection, she has shared her own version of Drake's single "Hotline Bling."
The version is called "HOTLINE BLING BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE MIX." It lifts the summery beat from the original track, but all of Drizzy's vocals are removed, with Badu cooing all of the vocals herself. In the middle of it, there's a comical answering machine message from a phone service.
Badu's son with André 3000, Steven Benjamin, gets a co-writing credit on this track.
