Although she disputes the term, Erykah Badu has been dubbed “the first lady of neo soul” and “the queen of neo-soul”. Her first album, Baduizm, earned her commercial and critical success, helping to establish her as one of the emerging neo soul genre’s leading artists. Along with D’Angelo‘s Brown Sugar (1995) and Maxwell‘s Urban Hang Suite (1996), the album has been recognized by music writers for beginning neo soul’s popularity and helping the genre obtain commercial visibility at the time.
Badu has been a vegetarian for over 20 years, and had been a vegan for two years as of 2008.
