Incense creator and songstress, Erykah Badu is prepared to stop fans mid-scroll and give them what they’ve been looking for. The “Window Seat” artist is authoritatively commencing Quarantine Concert Series: “Apocalypse One spilled live from her room.”
Fans can stream the show for a small $1 dollar fee. “It’s a pretty ambitious project,” Badu said in a pre-show video to her more than 3.4 million Facebook fans on Monday (March 23) night. “I said I was going to do it, I told my fans that I would, and that’s what I’m going to do.”
Instead of calling “Tyrone,” Badu took to Instagram Live to clarify some issues of being attached to a record company, and why she’s charging to stream her bedroom show. “We rely on our live shows and all of our live shows got canceled indefinitely,” said Badu.
The single Mother of three went on to say, “We’re not rich people, we just play rich people on TV. Some of us only have one form of income and that’s live shows. I wanted to create another revenue of income and you are helping me do that in a big way because this is an experiment. There’s nobody in between me and that dollar.”
Badu’s song selections will be handpicked by logged-in fans who vote during the stream. Her performance begins at 1 AM ET/12 AM CST/ 10 PM PST. Stream the series live on her official site here.
