Erykah Badu really is an "analog girl in a digital world."

She took to Twitter earlier this week to share some news about her upcoming mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone, which will be her first full-length release in over five years.

"Second single from mix tape tomorrow," she wrote. "Creating live video in real time on PERISCOPE... $ 4pm PST LIVE from Vegas."

And she did just that. Consider her the first to do it—recording a live music video on a social media outlet.

Yesterday (November 5) she shot another set of tweets reaffirming her plans for broadcast, along with a Periscope link for all to watch the premiere of her new single and video for "Phonedown."
