Erykah Badu’s “On & On”
For the “On & On” music video, Erykah Badu turned to the movie adaptation of Alice Walker’s The Color Purple for inspiration. Badu was depicted as a maid working in a Black household, performing chores around the house, which included chasing a dog off for messing around with her laundry hanging on a clothesline. The video ended with Badu and a group of people singing and dancing in a barn. “On & On” was nominated for MTV Music Video Awards for Best Female Video and Best R&B Video.
