Miles Davis, Robert Glasper (@robertglasper) – Maiysha (So Long) ft. Erykah Badu (@fatbellybella)

I like videos that make you think, videos that push the envelope, artistic pieces of cinema that actually add to the song as oppose to just accompanying the song. A well thought out video can give a song life it can add on to the vision of the song and sometimes clear up the intent of the artist. This is definitely true of the new video by Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper and Miles Davis (yes Miles Davis). The video is a highly-style and hilarious clip, directed by E. Badu herself. The treatment serves as the second visual from the tribute album that Robert Glasper did for Miles Davis Everything’s Beautiful. The album is a brilliant collaborative effort that lines him up with some of soul and jazz’s finest talents (not to mention, everything in between.) Watch Erykah Badu steal the show in the video for “Maiysha (So Long)”
