I Wanna Be Where You Are By Erykah Badu & The Roots
One of the greatest things coming out of Michael’s deaths to me is that people are singing and dancing for him out of celebration of his life. We have a lot to say about the BET awards for instance, and how it lacked this simple thing. How hard is it if you’re a celebrity to pick up a mic and sang a simple song or to put on your dancing shoes and bust a move?
I’m so disappointed in a lot of artists, man. I want to here heartfelt covers and see reinactments. Am I trippin’ or is that not a good way to pay homage? What’s hard here people?
I say all that to say, Erykah and The Roots sort of went in & it was just really great to hear it. Enjoy.
