The post comes a while after Erykah was shamed by fans at her Chicago concert when she expressed support for R.Kelly, who had been receiving a lot of heat due to the scandal accusing him as a sex offender.

The video featured her kids singing along with Frank Sinatra on his rendition of "High Hopes," as they navigated through traffic.

"I love you. Unconditionally. That doesn't mean I support your poor choices, that's all I've ever said. Anything else has been fabricated or taken out of context." 

Now all seems to have been forgiven as her latest post, which is just a day old, has garnered an astonishing one million views as well as lots of positive comments from fans of the singer.

According to Essence, this is not the first time Badu's family will be capturing hearts. In 2016, a video of Badu's kids, Seven and Mars, went viral. 

The video featured her kids singing along with Frank Sinatra on his rendition of "High Hopes," as they navigated through traffic.

A similar occurrence happened in 2018 when Puma, Badu's daughter, also impressed netizens when she belted out a song with near-perfect vocals during her mother's birthday bash.
