So Tyrone isn’t the guy who is being kicked to the curb here. In this hit song from Erykah Badu’s double-platinum 1997 album Live, she smoothly and sternly tells her man that she’s tired of sharing him with all his friends, including the aforementioned Tyrone, and tired of paying all the bills. The beauty of the ditty and its coolly cruel tone is in the performance, which is why this song works so well as part of her live-concert album. She repeatedly tells the soon-to-be ex to call Tyrone for help with moving his stuff out of her place. But in the end, she’s not going to let him off easy — ’cause he can’t use her phone. Just watch and listen.
