One longtime fan of Badu’s, it turns out, is J-pop singer Misia. When Badu was in Japan
a year ago for concerts organized by Positive Productions, the two did media appearances together, including an interview with Metropolis. Badu had been asked the previous year by Misia to appear on the Misia tribute album Mars & Roses, the result of which was the collaboration “Akai Inochi.”

“Misia I understand to be a pop artist who is one of the number one R&B artists in Japan,” Badu lilted in Dallas tones at her hotel between shows. “It’s not what I understand R&B to be, but here it’s totally different. We’re from two totally different planets as far as our musical styles.”

To record the song, Misia went to New York to work with Badu. “I thought it was very interesting to meet her because she doesn’t look anything like she sounds,” recalled Badu, who does share with Misia a statuesque figure. “When I met her I was like, ‘She’s really interesting,’ and I was reading the lyrics to her song, and it was the most profound, beautiful thing I’d ever heard in my life, because our missions were so similar in terms of what we want for this planet.

“One of my assignments was to write or produce one of her songs. I was thinking, How come she gets a tribute album? She’s only 22 years old—tribute to what? Then Mo gives me a stack of CDs—she’s got like 17 CDs out—I’m like damn, Misia’s workin’.”

Badu was evasive about a follow-up to her 2003 live set Worldwide Underground. Though reports have cited her working with Pharrell, she wouldn’t say whether it was on tracks for her new album. “I don’t know how that stuff gets out, but I was at the studio where Pharrell works in Miami, we tossed some stuff around, but I wouldn’t define it as working together.”
