Erykah Badu Made Less Than $4 Busking in NYC


New Yorkers tend to be pretty oblivious of their surroundings, as evidenced by this video of Queen of Neo-Soul Erykah Badu busking anonymously on the streets of New York, during which time she makes a grand total of $3.60. That, funnily enough, is the exact amount she references in her hit song "On and On," when she sings, "I was born under water with three dollars and six dimes.” New York may be full of jerks, but it’s also full of synchronicity! (Mostly jerks, though.)
