Erykah Badu Covers Up in 'Window Seat' Remix Clip
After her controversial "Window Seat" video, Erykah Badu was slandered for undressing while reenacting the shooting of JFK at his assassination site. But in the clip for the remix to "Window Seat" and "Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY)," featuring Rick Ross, the Texas native is actually covering up as the video progresses.

The video starts off with a news report about "Window Seat," and then, continuing from the cliffhanger, breaks into a scene of Ross rapping his verse over a mobile device while standing in front of a white Porsche. He then takes off to pick up Badu, who is sporting the same braided wig she wore in the end of "Window Seat" and an oversized button-up shirt. Once inside the car, Badu apparently enjoys the wind so much, she decides to remove the wig, exposing her natural, highlighted hair -- a move she rarely does.
Ross then pulls the car up to a parking lot of a convenient store, and both the "Teflon Don" and a barefooted Badu get out and into a Cadillac, but not before Ross gets a duffle bag from the trunk. The bag is carrying a pair of high heels and latex tights, which Badu immediately changes into.
They stop again at another store, but this time put white netting over their faces as if their going to rob the place. Gun shots are heard and the video abruptly ends as the words "To Be Continued" come on the screen.
Erykah Badu's latest "New Amerykah, Pt. 2: Return of the Ankh," has sold 268,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
