Erykah Badu Finally Reveals How "Call Tyrone" Came Together On Song's 20-Year Anniversary
R&B singer Erykah Badu is finally coughing up the truth. The curvy crooner has revealed the essence and origin of her "Tyrone" hit.
Badu went to Instagram Saturday (November 18) to reflect on the iconic song's 20-year anniversary.
Call Tyrone is 20 today ... shouts out to @ndambi , Karen Bernard, and Joyce Hurtz. They were hitting that "CALL HIM". They had to be super alert because they never knew what I was going to do next on stage. Luckily we had played around with this tune as a joke in rehearsal the day before when Norman keys Hurts was messing around on the Rhodes. I freestyled the whole thing live the next night in DC. The girls hit that "call him " on cue with just a glance from me as a signal. We heard it on the radio the next day ...Crazy . Call Tyrone followed me thru my career like an obsessed X boyfriend. No matter how I tried to avoid it .. it was always there. I think that's how 3000 feels about 'hey ya!' I'm Blessed! Our son is also 20 today. Happy b day Seven and Tyrone.❤️ Video repost from @e.baduworld
