Erykah Badu's new mixtape But You Cain't Use My Phone will drop imminently; news of the forthcoming release arrived after she revealed a remix/cover of Drake's 'Hotline Bling'. In celebration of the mixtape, she appeared on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show for a chat and to share a 30-minute mix called 'Beats & Lotus Petals' - you can listen to that below.

Speaking about the origins of But You Cain't Use My Phone, Badu said:

"There’s this kid who’s kind of a prodigy in my city. He was responsible for bringing in the boogie movement, and they called him White Chocolate, because he grew up in an all-black neighborhood. His name’s Zac Witness. Zac did a remix of ‘On and On’ and handed it to me through social media. And I listened to it and I was like, ‘Woah, what is this?’ And when I thought about doing the ‘Hotline Bling’ remix I thought about him. And the same week, he came to one of my events in passing and we exchaanged phone numbers. And the next week we were in his bedroom studio, we did the whole project in 11 days. And this kid produced, reproduced some other thing, mixed, and mastered, he mastered the project in two days. I did vocals one take for each song. Amazing."
