While the rest of us Erykah Badu stans were lamenting our misfortune at not being able to attend the album release party at Dallas' Bills, Records, and Tapes music store, several of her fans were able to go to the meet-and-greet. Not only were they able to buy their copies of New Amerykah at the stroke of midnight on February 26th, but some were even able to get up close and personal with Badu and even got to hug it out with the songstress herself!
The next day, these same fans, courtesy of MySpace Secret Shows, were able to attend the exclusive concert/jam session at the House of Blues attended by ?uestlove, Taz Arnold of Sa-Ra Creative Partners, 9th Wonder, Pharaohe Monch, and also Dave Chappelle. Now that would have been a show to remember, and I'm sure birthday girl Erykah turned it out like only she knew how. Peep the vid below for highlights. Photo stills from the concert, including those who made special guest appearances, can be found here.
