Badu World Market is already making headlines.
Prior to her online shop’s launch, the neo-soulstress told 10 Magazine of her plans to sell an incense imbued with her own scent.
“I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them,” she told the publication at the time, adding that “even the ash is part of it.” After her store launched, Erykah took to Instagram where she revealed that the premium incense sold out in 19 minutes.
