Motherhood gave Erykah Badu a stronger voice

Singer Erykah Badu, 36, has always been known for her writing skills in the music world, but after her children — son Seven, 10, and daughter Puma, 3 ½ — entered the world, they have influenced her for the better.

In the past, I did things in my own time, own speed and in my own way. When you have other people that you are responsible for, you have to create more options for yourself. My children motivate me to move and to be a good example of me … to be the best me I can be.

As far as my music? It’s still me. I’m not saying anything differently; I’m just saying it at a higher frequency. As I’ve grown, my music has grown. It’s like higher vibrations, without the same mistakes.

Erykah’s next release, New Amerykah, will be out on February 26th.
