Erykah Badu and Summer Walker graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s “Musician on Musician” issue.

The two discussed a few different topics including Erykah’s relationship with the father of her son, and artist Andre 3000.

Erykah says about the relationship, “when we became boyfriend and girlfriend in the ‘90s, we didn’t become friends first. We were attracted to each other first,” she said. “We had stuff in common, but we didn’t learn all of that until over the years. We have a 23-year-old son. Over these years, we’ve just become closer and closer as friends, as humans, as man, as woman.”

She also mentions that though the two separated, they are still great friends. “He just left Dallas, actually. He came down for my grandma’s memorial. He’s one of my best friends on the planet,” she shared. “I care for him so very much, about his livelihood, his art, his feelings. And I’m a super big fan of him. I’m assuming he’s also a fan of my music. We’re really close.”

“We laugh all the time, talk about things. It’s brother and sister, it’s grandmother and grandson, it’s father and daughter. It’s so many different things depending on what the situation calls for,” she said.

Summer Walker, who just announced she’s expecting a baby of her own- called Badu and 3000’s relationship dynamics beautiful.
