Drake’s “Hotline Bling” hit is the starting point for Erykah Badu’s first release in five years. She tosses that and other telephone signifiers -- New Edition’s “Mr. Telephone Man,” Usher’s “U Don’t Have to Call” and her own “Tyrone” -- into a neo-soul blender, improvises new lyrics and promises seductively, “I can make you put your phone down.” The results are fun and shamelessly ephemeral. Drake drops in on “U Use to Call Me” to talk about – what else? – himself. “Recognition for a great man, about time,” he brags. More poignant is a reunion between Erykah and former romantic partner Andre 3000 on “Hello,” a cover of Todd Rundgren’s “Hello It’s Me.”
