Erykah Badu & Robert Glasper Star In A Charming Video For "Maiysha (So Long)"Miles Davis tribute album Everything’s Beautiful out and about in the world, Robert Glasper has brought the past to the present in a brilliant collaborative album that lines him up with some of soul and jazz’s finest talents (not to mention, everything in between.) And while you’ve surely had enough time by now to soak up that hefty star-studded piece, Glasper’s Erykah Badu link-up “Maiysha (So Long)” has officially been visualized in a highly-style and hilarious clip, directed by Miss E. Badu herself. The treatment serves as the second visual to make way from the album, following the gripping and poignant animated piece for “Ghetto Walkin'” featuring Bilal.

Watch Erykah Badu steal the show in the video for “Maiysha (So Long)” down below and jump back to read Glasper’s own words on his brilliant tributary piece. Pick up your copy of Everything’s Beautiful on iTunes today.
