About this album

New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) is the fifth studio album by American R&B and neo soul musician Erykah Badu, released March 30, 2010 on Universal Motown. Production for the album was handled by several producers, including J Dilla, Questlove, James Poyser, Madlib, 9th Wonder, Sa-Ra, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and Karriem Riggins. Contrasting its sonically complex and socially-themed predecessor, New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) (2008), the album contains a prominently groove-based, analog sound with personal and love-related lyrical themes.

The album debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 110,000 copies in its first week. It achieved moderate international success and produced two singles, “Window Seat” and “Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY)”. Upon its release, New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) received general acclaim from most music critics.
