Erykah Badu

When: Fri., March 4, 8 p.m. 2011

The mantra Black Girls Rule is as powerful as ever—especially now that Janelle Monáe's fluorescent fusion of anything rhythmic has her headed toward pop iconoclasm. We owe a great deal of this to the reigning priestess of soul music, Erykah Badu, whose 2010 LP New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh should have been mentioned in any one of this year's Grammy conversations—some of which included Monáe. For years, Badu has used these onstage moments as her therapy sessions, a one-on-all confessional with her long-time disciples, all no less than entranced by their one-and-only analogue girl. —Eric Tullis
