Dallas Native Erykah Badu Receives A Huge Honor From Her Hometown!

Erykah Baud has a ton of hits and one of her most well known songs is called "Window Seat" where she sings about getting a ticket to anywhere and getting away from it all.

It just so happens that her famous video for that song (where she strips down to her underwear in public) was shot in Dallas and her hometown is showing her love for her many contributions to music, art and fashion by giving her not a "seat" but the ENTIRE BUS!

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) formally unveiled its collaboration with the four-time Grammy-winning Dallas native.

At a press conference this week outside of her alma mater, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, DART unveiled one of the three DART buses and two light rail cars now bearing her face and designs.

The idea came about 6 years ago according to DART and beyond her face being plastered on the outsides of the vehicles, riders will hear announcements voiced by Badu which will be PSAs centered around the idea of respectful ridership.

Badu Says The Honor Is "Overwhelming".

In an interview, Badu added that she and her family used to ride the bus while growing up in Dallas wished that her Grandmother was still here to see it all.

If you're ever in Dallas, take a ride on the Badu Bus and make sure you grab a window seat and let us know what you think!
