But You Caint Use My Phone is also No. 1 on both the overall Apple Music Streaming Charts and Apple R&B Streaming Charts. Released last Friday as an Apple exclusive, the mixtape is expected to debut highly on the Billboard Album Charts next week.
But You Caint Use My Phone was written, recorded and mixed in Badu's own Dallas, TX home over the course of a twelve-day period with producer Zach Witness.
The title of the release is a reference to Badu's hit song "Tyrone," taken from her 1997 Live album. Check it out on Spotify here.

We were sent this background information about the new album: The new album wasn't crafted in one fell swoop. Instead, Miike Snow (Andrew Wyatt, Christian Karlsson & Pontus Winnberg) collaborated across space and time, meeting in Stockholm, Los Angeles and New York for short periods over almost two years. Each musician began with different songs, sometimes sending them back and forth digitally when they couldn't be together in one room. The combination of the musicians is an electric one, as exemplified on the album and in their live shows. "I think we really weren't meant to be in the studio together and do music together and then we do and it just works," Karlsson reflects. "I think that's the whole magic with this band. We have so much trust and respect for each other…nothing comes together easier than Miike Snow. The pieces just fall into place."
Production for the new effort was handled G-Eazy himself as well as long time collaborator Christoph Anderson, Boi-1da, Southside, DJ Spinz, Kane Beatz, and Remo.
The video for the album's breakout single, "Me, Myself, and I" featuring Bebe Rexha has already amassed over 5.3 million views on YouTube since its release in late October. Watch it here.
