The Queen of Neo- Soul is back again with the new record “Queen” with Recording Artist Janelle Monáe. Erykah Badu deserves the title as Queen, not only through her music, but with her hair. She has been a natural diva since she began her career in 1996. With her type 4 hair, she has gone through styles from the big chop to the super fro. She is notorious for her hair, even standing tall through the mishaps. Badu is very bold and very Bohemian with her look and her hair expresses her beliefs in staying as pure as possible.
Her soul is filled with great music and with deep thought and hopes for her community. Badu has always shown her activism through her music and her hair is just another reflection of her spirit as a black woman. She told curlology.com, “My hair is an aesthetic choice. How you wear your hair is a political statement as well. Pretty much everything you do as a black woman is a political statement.” Badu is currently gearing up for a performance with BET’s Fan Fest beginning June 28th.
