  1. Bag Lady

    "Bag Lady" is the first single from singer Erykah Badu's 2000 album Mama's Gun. The song is about a woman trying to begin anew in a relationship, but who has too much emotional "baggage" and can't get close to people. The message of the song is to "pack light" and have hope for the future. The song was a success on the charts, entering the Billboard Top Ten and peaking at number six; it topped the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Charts for seven weeks. The song featured a music video shot on Mini DV digital video — an unusual choice for a mainstream music video production, which gave it an appearance comparable to a home movie. The remixed version samples the song "Xxplosive" from Dr. Dre's 1999 album 2001. To date, this is the last single released by Motown Records to reach number-one on the R&B chart under the original banner of the label before merging with Universal. It earned Badu two nominations at the 43rd Grammy Awards: Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.
