R&B singer Erykah Badu doesn’t leave much to the imagination in a new video she shot recently with The Flaming Lips.
The edgy, expressive singer - who wore her birthday suit in her 2010 “Window Seat” video - is at it again, this time posing naked in a bathtub while crooning “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” a classic made famous by Roberta Flack, per Rolling Stone.
Interestingly, the most provocatively bared body parts - dripping with milk, glitter and another substance at various points throughout the video - do not actually belong to the Grammy-winning singer but her sister Nayrok, according to the magazine.
The eye-popping slow-motion visual, in which The Lips frontman Wayne Coyne can be seen strumming a guitar fully clothed, accompanies the famous remake that was released back in April as part of the rock band’s compilation, “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends.”
"Wayne is the Willy Wonka of music," Badu previously told Rolling Stone of recording with Coyne. "I didn't know what was going to happen .... By the 29th time, EUREKA! I understood exactly what I wanted."
The album also features collaborations with Bon Iver, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket and Ke$ha.
