Soul star Erykah Badu recently premiered the remix music video to her controversial single “Window Seat,” featuring rapper Rick Ross.
In the original video for “Window Seat,” Badu is captured walking the streets of Dallas’ Dealey Plaza in Texas, going from fully clothed to completely naked, then being shot at the end.
Badu, who was looking to draw controversial dialogue over the racy video, was later charged for disorderly conduct, in which she plead not guilty.
“I expected it to provoke dialogue, and it’s an important statement to make. It’s about freeing oneself of the layers and layers of things that we have learned as Americans in this country,” Badu said in a recent interview.
Our guess is she didn’t die in the first “Window Seat,” since this version has her going to prison. She’s later picked up by Ross in his Porsche Panorama turbo and readies herself for another controversial act.
“It’s basically, we continuing where the first ‘Window Seat’ ended,” Ross who directs the video told MTV. “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’.”
Both “Window Seat” and “Get Money” are taken from Erykah Badu’s fifth studio album “New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh),” which is currently in stores.
