Soul singer Erykah Badu posted a message on Facebook featuring a link to BEP’s “Yesterday” clip as well as a link to her visuals for “Honey” off 2008’s New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) album. The Texas native pointed out both videos had very similar themes, but she was a good sport about the correlations.
