In 2008 nu-soul queen Erykah Badu returned after a half decade hiatus with her critically acclaimed fourth album New Amerykah Part 1: 4th World War. It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and yielded the singles "Honey" and "Soldier." Badu enlisted some of the most talented, groundbreaking underground producers and engineers in the hip-hop game to support her breakthrough return, including Grammy Award winning producer 9th Wonder (Jay-Z, Nas, Mary J. Blige), Madlib, Mike "Chav" Chavarria and R&B singer Bilal. "The music is the star," says Erykah, "I just laid down my vocals and let the music breathe while the melodies tell the stories." The album was followed by New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh in 2010.
