*For her next act, Erykah Badu is calling on her alter ego.
The neo-soul star, famously ticketed last year for her “Window Seat” video strip tease on a public street, will release her first-ever mixtape next month using the name “DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown,” a persona she introduced in Dallas at the PM Lounge last December.
Loretta returned to the DJ booth Friday in Los Angeles for the “Black Girls Rock and Soul Tour” at the Key Club, as well as at a BET Award’s pre-show dinner the night after.
She said her mixtape project will “melt any DJ’s face off.”
Until then, she’ll next be seen as one of the headlining acts on this year’s Rock the Bells Festival where she will be performing her debut album ‘Baduizm” in its entirety.
The festival kicks off Aug. 20 in Los Angeles and wraps Sept. 10 in Boston.
