[artist id=”872″]Erykah Badu[/artist] certainly caught everyone’s eye with her provocative “Window Seat” video , and now the soul songstress plans to take her act on the road. Her Out My Mind, Just in Time tour, named after a track on her new album, New Amerykah, Part Two: Return of the Ankh, kicks off in Baltimore on May 22. It wraps up on June 24 in Las Vegas.
According to a press release, the show will have a number of revolving opening acts, including N.E.R.D., Bilal, Janelle Monáe and the Roots drummer ?uestlove. After her own solo outing, Badu will also play at Lollapalooza this summer and several dates on the revived girl-power music festival Lilith Fair , along with singer/songwriters like Sarah McLachlan and pop princesses Selena Gomez and Ke$ha.
