Erykah Badu & James Poyser – Tempted (Cover)

Erykah Badu & James Poyser Cover “Tempted” By Squeeze

We haven’t had new music from Erykah Badu in over three years. Her last song was “But You Cain’t Use My Phone” which she released back in 2015. However, for this year’s Record Store Day, she linked up with James Poyser of The Roots for a cover of “Tempted” by Squeeze.

The song itself has been uploaded across streaming services. An instrumental version of the song was also uploaded. The instrumental is also credited to Ali Jackson, Thundercat, and Derrick Hodge.

“Tempted” originally served as the second single off of Squeeze’s 1981 album, East Side Story but it later became popular after its inclusion in Burger King and Heineken commercials.

While Erykah has been on a four year hiatus from music, we indeed hope that this is a sign that we could expect more music from her in the near future.
