Besides a new tour, Badu may have new music to look forward to. Producer Madlib recently stated that he was working on a new album with the “On and On” songstress during an appearance on “Sway’s Universe.” He was with Talib Kweli, promoting their new project, “Liberation 2.”

“[Erykah and I] just started on an album,” Madlib told Sway. “We have a lot of unreleased stuff.” Madlib produced songs on Badu’s last two studio albums, 2008’s “New Amerykah Part One (4th World War)” and 2009’s “New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh).”
