Badu shared her version, titled “She Stronger,” in an Instagram post on Monday (January 16). She used a custom-built MPC Live to create the 808, which she got for her own birthday in 2022.
“‘She Stronger’ Sade remix programmed and performed live by eb,” Erykah Badu wrote in her caption. “Custom gold and wood grain case for badu gold MPC live by @currycases.”
Watch the Sade remix below:
“Love Is Stronger Than Pride” was the lead single from Sade’s third studio album, 1988’s Stronger than pride. The LP debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart and has since been certified 3x platinum by the RIAA.
Badu has consistently shown her fellow artists love throughout her career. Back in July, she left Megan Thee Stallion in shock when she made a special appearance at Meg’s show in Switzerland and ended up delivering an impromptu twerk session.
Wearing a white t-shirt and cut off jean shorts, Badu got busy and Megan loved every second of it.
“As I tell you, my girl @erykahbadu shocked the crap out of me,” the Houston hottie wrote via Instagram after the affair. “I didn’t know she was coming up here and cutting up like this in Switzerland. Real mf TEXAS SH!T REAL MF HOT GIRL SH!T.”
Badu also went off on a Twitter troll who dared to cross her when she tried to bathe a colleague from H-Town Travis Scott with love amid his 2021 Astroworld Festival tragedy.
“Bless you @trvisXX,” she wrote. “Safe journey to all souls. I’m so sorry.” One person who goes by the Twitter handle @saviorisntme shot back, “THE NURSE IS OUT AGAIN!!!,” a jab at Badu’s mental health. It didn’t take long for Badu to respond with “Fuk u ho.”
