R&B singer/songwriter Erykah Badu will release her third studio album, “Worldwide Underground,” Sept. 16 through Motown Records. The set will be the follow-up to 2000’s “Mama’s Gun,” which has sold 1.2 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
“Worldwide Underground” will be preceded by the lead single “Danger,” which will officially ship to radio in early August. The track was produced by Badu and co-written with R.C. Williams. Also set for the new disc is a collaboration with Lenny Kravitz titled “Back in the Day” and a remake of the girl rap trio Sequence’s classic hip-hop tune “Funk You Up.” The latter features Badu rapping with Queen Latifah, Angie Stone and Bahmadia.
