Erykah Badu performs onstage at the 10th Annual Jazz in the Gardens: Celebrating 10 Years of Great Music at Sun Life Stadium on March 22, 2015 in Miami Gardens, Florida. 

Erykah Badu’s “Hotline Bling” remix (aka “HOTLINE BLING BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE MIX”) was dropped in September as the first single from an upcoming mixtape the soul queen has in the works. Almost 2 million SoundCloud plays later, fans of the “Bag Lady” crooner are all ears for But You Caint Use My Phone in full.

This morning, Badu took to Twitter to announce that she has another track from the tape on tap for today -- complete with a Periscope music vid filmed in real time.

It’s about to get real.
