I can remember lying on my sister’s bed, listening to Erykah Badu’sBaduizm album on repeat and thinking about how much I wanted to be a teenager in the 90’s. Fifteen years later, Erykah Badu is still one of my favorite artists especially since I am now old enough to fully comprehend her lyrics.
“Next Lifetime” tells a classic tale of a woman being torn between the man she is with and the man she truly loves. Badu uses her smooth neo-soul rhythms to assist in taking you on a journey through her mind as she imagines her and her lover as butterflies, loving each other without restrictions.
“Next Lifetime” reached number one on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hip Chart and Baduizm helped neo-soul as a genre of music climb to popularity and placed Erykah Badu as one of neo-soul’s leading artist.
We gave you all the opportunity to choose this week’s Throwback Thursday 90’s R&B favorite and the results are in! This hit was one of the longest running number-one R&B singles in 1993.

My friends can vouch for me when I say that this is my all time favorite Biggie song. It not only has an awesome melody behind the lyrics, that originally derived from Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” (another classic), but also sends a message of inspiration. When you listen to this song, it not only makes you want to dance your life away and sing along, but also encourages you to use your past to help motivate and elevate you to your future.
