Hi-Tek Music Releases!

"I have three albums coming out this year, the first one will be released on February 26 (her birthday) and it's gonna be called New Amerykah," Badu says, adding that the next, Return Of The Ankh is scheduled for a July release."The other one's gonna be called New Amerykah II and it's gonna be a totally digital experience."Removing an ebony puff of her larger-than-life afro from her face, Badu explains the meaning of "totally digital experience"."You'll purchase (instead of a CD) a USB stick, each will come with a specific code that you punch in. That way you'll get to upload a new song every month for the next 10 months."Her digital ideas, however, don't stop there!"I'll also be starting a magazine called Freaq, it's gonna be dedicated to arts, politics, beauty, fashion, photography and technology," shares the 36-year-old, adding that she also manages her own Myspace page.

Erykah's one of those Women that I just want to talk to, or someone needs to do a real interview w/ her. Not a frilly fluffed up interview, some real deep conversation type stuff. I love how she breaks down the chorus...
So now I see where the Ankh comes in2 play (from the album cover. I'm actually very excited that she's releasing so much stuff this year, and on such an innovative level. Genius.
