Erykah Badu’s sixth album New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) was released yesterday and one of the instant stand outs is the message laden and immediately controversial “Window Seat.” The song in it’s self is smooth, easy, soulful, and insightful. The majority of the controversy stems from the accompanying music video. The music video was “shot guerrilla style” in one take and captures her walking along a Dallas, Texas, sidewalk stripping off her clothes until she is eventually naked. Suddenly a shot rings out as the song ends and Badu falls to the ground close to the site where John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
