It seems Erykah Badu has more music beyond that "Hotline Bling" rework. In an interview with Noisey, Badu commented on a number of topics and mentioned that a new mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone, will drop next week.

Badu didn't offer much in the way of details, saying that "the usual suspects" can be expected to be involved and that she just recently dove back into songwriting.

"I’m writing all the time, but recently I got the bug back," Badu told Noisey. "When it comes, it comes, and I can’t force it, but recently I got it back with “Hotline Bling” and all the other things I’ve been experimenting with."

Badu commented further on Drake and her recent inspiration, saying that she "loved" the feud with Meek Mill and that she and the Toronto singer/rapper really are great friends. (Drake name-droppd Badu on "Days in the East," saying that she made tea for him while the two were at her house.)

Additionally, Badu credited D'angelo's comeback album Black Messiah for reigniting her own musical pursuits. "I didn’t know how much I missed his voice and his mark until I heard it," she said. "It also gave me a little boost or a little spark."

Badu will also be hosting the Soul Train Awards next month and premiering a one-woman show in Dallas this week. Read the interview in its entirety here and be on the lookout for that mixtape soon.
