Erykah Badu is arguably the most iconic soul singer of her generation. She debuted with an idiosyncratically earthy take on neo-soul with 1997's Baduizm, flaunted her mischievous wit on superb singles "Tyrone" and "Southern Gul," beefed up her songwriting with 2000's Mama's Gun, polished her hip-hop bona fides via collaborations — personal and/or artistic — with the likes of Andre Benjamin, The Roots, and Common, and has let her freak flag fly from Dave Chappelle's Block Party to Dealy Plaza.

Lately, Badu has segued into musically smooth, philosophically combative funk with her New Amerykah series, the second of which, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, released earlier this year.

Touring in the support of the album, Badu lands in Memphis Thursday night, June 10th, to play The Orpheum, with the like-minded Janelle Monae opening.

We've got a pair of tickets to give away, which also include admittance to a post-show meet-and-greet with Badu. For a chance to win the tickets, all you have to do is e-mail me at herrington@memphisflyer.com by noon Tuesday with "Badu Contest" in the subject line and your name and a contact number in the message. A winner will be chosen at random from all entries.
