Fans of R&B high priestess, Erykah Badu know how much she idolizes the 80’s girl group, The Mary Jane Girls. So it’s no surprise to us that she has decided to channel the Rick James protégés (in particularly JoJo) during a recent photo shoot for Instyle Magazine’s September Issue.  From the iconic beaded braids to the classic smokey eye to the funkdafied 70’s fashions, Badu knock this look out the water and we absolutely love it.

mjgThe Grammy-winning singer posted the photos along with the following caption: “Oooooh.. Honored to be featured in Sept. Issue of IN STYLE mag. Don’t care to much about Fashion…but if you got your own Style come fck with me..”

In the issue, the 43-year-old Texan and current face of Givenchy gloats about “songs that changed her” as a performer including “Home” from the award-winning Broadway musical, The Wiz.

“When I was a kid, I saw The Wiz  starring Stephanie Mills, this young girl with an angelic voice. So when my rec center held auditions for The Wiz,  I tried out for Dorothy and got the part. When I sing it today, I feel 9 years old again.”
