[artist id=”872″]Erykah Badu[/artist] bled the words “group think” in her critically acclaimed (but nonetheless controversial) “Window Seat” video , but that wasn’t the end of her journey. Badu recently shot a video for the “Window Seat” remix with Rick Ross .
“I had to come get the queen,” Ross said about the video. “They had her boxed up.” The clip starts with Ross coming to get the Grammy-winning songstress from jail. “It was only right. I was swerving through Dallas in that Porsche Panorama turbo. I had to slide up on her, scoop her up. We got back to business. We went on another caper.
“It’s basically, we continuing where the first ’Window Seat’ ended,” he added. “Where she was assassinated and ultimately scooped up and arrested. We continuing from there. She’s got a dope cut on her album called ’Get Money.’ Y’all need to download and check it out. It’s the next single. And it’s the bridge between the assassination, going into the ’Window Seat’ remix, me doing my sh–. Then we ultimately going into ’Get Money,’ which I feel is my favorite record off of [New Amerykah Part Two: Return of] the Ankh.”
Like she did in the original video, Badu came up with the concept and directed it with Creative Control as the cinematographers.
“She most definitely is a super talented individual,” Ross said. “Of course she’s extremely beautiful. It’s hard to look into her eyes for too long. She’s so sweet. Just to see her creativity. She also directed the video along with her team. To see her vision, just to see her work ethic. She’s like me. We filming to the wee hours. It’s real big. She’s the definition of a strong woman. I’m proud for her to be a strong black woman, just to see her so hands-on with her career. From the producing of her music to the writing of her music. The entire process of her writing her entire album all the way down to directing her videos and editing. For me to be sitting here while she’s [filming the video], doing what she’s doing, the singing. And she’s also checking the angles. It was like, ’Wow.’ I never knew that. I knew she was super talented and so hands-on and in charge of her entire project. She gets the ultimate boss look.”
