Nobody made it rain? It’s Erykah Badu people
Surely, they didn’t realize that. Surely, to Erykah Badu fans–like the ones that interrupted her early on in the video clip–recognizing Badu no matter what disguise she has on, isn’t the hardest thing to do. But, to her credit, she isn’t necessarily the most recognizable face in music. So, when she decided to take to Times Square to sing for cash, her grand sum of $3.60 isn’t really surprising, especially considering her lyrics consisted of things like “I don’t want to get no job”. It’s a pretty awesome thing to think of, if you’re a fan and/or a resident of New York City–that you can be walking from the movie theatre on 42nd St. and 8th Ave. to the train station and run into Erykah Badu trying to make a dollar out of fifteen cents.
