Nas And Erykah Badu Team Up On “This Bitter Land”: Listen
Erykah Badu has linked up with Nas on a new haunting single “This Bitter Land,” which will be featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming movie The Land.
The track is goosebumps-inducing from the get-go, filled with moody violins and Badu’s longing croons. “This bitter land/ Watered with my soul/ The fruit, it bears/ Leaves me so cold,” she coos in the beginning of the number. Nas then proceeds to provide a few poignant verses about perseverance in these dark times and ultimately seeing the light.
The Land (which stars Badu, Michael K. Williams , and Machine Gun Kelly) and the soundtrack are slated to release on July 29. The album also contains new tracks from Pusha T, Jeremih, Nosaj Thing and even boasts French Montana’s “Figure It Out” with Nas and Kanye West.
