Welp. If you haven’t already signed up for Jay Z’s new service TIDAL…you ain’t gettin Erykah Badu’s latest movie. You also won’t be getting Beyonce’s latest song, “Die With You”, and you most certainly won’t get to see Rih Rih’s newest video, “American Oxygen.” Sucks for you! (And me too, if we keepin’ it funky)

In the short film, They Die By Dawn, which also happens to be a Western, Badu, alongside Jesse Williams, (swoon) Isiah Washington, Michael K Williams and more, shows us how the West was REALLY won.

I don’t know about you guys but I’m super excited about this. Finally something NEW! Erykah is always thinking outside the box, and that’s why we love her. The movie debuted this week, on April 4th. Are y’all finally going to give in and check it out?
