Baduizm is the debut album by American nu soul singer Erykah Badu, released in 1997 (see 1997 in music). Baduizm established Badu as a popular artist and received reviews lauding her return to the simplicity of early-1970s soul. Though she has since become known as much for her sometimes extravagant pseudo-traditional African fashion, Badu's original claim to fame was bass-heavy, groovy beats and emotionally charged lyrics.
