On the eve of the release of her upcoming album, "New Amerykah, Part II: Return of the Ankh," Erykah Badu has announced she will be leaking a promotional viral video on her official site, erykahbadu.com. Badu's personal publicist has confirmed.

"At 3:33 pm Tomorrow . Friday . The official leak ... erykahbadu.com," read the post by fatbellybella -- Badu's Twitter name. The teaser will feature snippets of the video for the bonus track, "Jump In The Air," featuring Lil Wayne and Bilal.

Last month, Badu announced "New Amerykah" will be physically released on March 30th according to a tweet she posted on Jan. 21. The album was original scheduled for Feb. 23.

"Return of the Ankh," which will be released through Universal Motown, features production from 9th Wonder, James Poyser, J Dilla and Madlib, among others. Bilal and Lil Wayne appear on the bonus web-only track, "Jump In The Air," which was scrapped from the physical tracklist after parts of it leaked on the internet in December.
