Erykah Badu puts her spin on yet another Hip Hop record with her remix of Kanye West’s “Real Friends.”
This week, Dallas, Texas songstress Erykah Badu released “Trill Friends,” a remixed version of Kanye West’s “Real Friends” record. Unlike Badu’s remake of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” “Trill Friends” features the same production as Ye’s “Real Friends.”
In a description for the song, the singer revealed that she was in the studio with plans to work on another record, when “Trill Friends” came about.
“BADU MESSIN ROUND THIS MORNIN (really suppose be recording something else …),” Badu wrote in a description on Soundcloud.
On “Trill Friends,” which has received a little under 200,000 plays on Soundcloud, Badu sings: “Homeboys and some of them we wish we never knew at all / Homegirls said, some of them we wish we never knew at all.”
Kanye’s “Real Friends” record was released earlier in the month, and is likely a part of the rapper’s newly-returned G.O.O.D. Friday series.
