"Baduizm" is the debut album of neo 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. The most popular song off the album, which led to her subsequent fame, was "On & On". On July 17, 2007, a special edition of "Baduizm" was released which contains the original album plus a bonus CD which contains different versions on "On & On", "Appletree", "Next Lifetime", and "A Child With the Blues" (originally featured in the film "Eve's Bayou").
