Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Part Two (Return Of The Ankh) -

New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Erykah Badu, released on March 30, 2010, by Universal Motown. The album is a sequel to her previous album, New Amerykah Part One (4th World War), which was released in 2008. While the first part was more political and social in its themes, the second part is more personal and romantic, exploring Badu's relationships and emotions. The album features a mix of soul, neo soul, funk, hip hop, and jazz influences, and showcases Badu's collaboration with various producers, such as J Dilla, Questlove, Madlib, 9th Wonder, and others. The album also features guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Bilal, and harpist Kirsten Agresta.

The album received critical acclaim from music critics, who praised its musical diversity, lyrical depth, and Badu's vocal performance. The album was also a commercial success, debuting at number four on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 110,000 copies in its first week. It also reached the top ten of several other charts worldwide. The album spawned three singles: "Window Seat", "Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY)", and "Gone Baby, Don't Be Long". The first single, "Window Seat", caused controversy for its music video, which featured Badu stripping naked and being shot at the site where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.

The album's title refers to the ancient Egyptian symbol of life, the ankh, which Badu has tattooed on her back. According to Badu, the album represents her return to her true self and her love for music. She also said that the album is about "the human struggle to balance the polarities within: joy and pain; love and war; wisdom and ignorance; passion and compassion". The album cover features a collage of images related to Badu's life and influences, such as her children, her mother, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Bob Marley, Sun Ra, and others.
