Weird Names of Music Performer's Children:

  • Seven Sirus Benjamin - I don't think this is a wierd name at all to tell the truth. If you know that badu is a 5 percenter, than you know why she named her son "Seven". Supreme Mathematics Submitted by: Jamal
  • Seven - I also named my sweet daughter Seven Lee, before I heard about Badu/3000 - we have a lot of fun with her name! Submitted by: Michael

  • Seven - Erykah Badu named her son Seven and her daughter Puma. She does not have any other children named Dallas or otherwise. Submitted by: Shaneil
  • Seven - Erykah Badu is part of the 5% nation in this 'religion'. The number 7 means God, which is maybe why she named her son this. Submitted by: Shariyan
  • Puma - I thinks it's okay, but why name your child after a cat and sneaker? Submitted by: Jamala
  • Seven - Supposedly, Erykah named her son Seven because of the fact that it's a number that can be divided by nothing but itself. Pretty heady, but it does give you something to chew on. Submitted by: Eric Andrews
  • Puma - Common is not Puma's father, which is why they broke up. She will not name who the father really is, although it's rumored it's 1990s rapper D.O.C.. Thank you. Submitted by: Tiffany
  • Seven - I like this name a lot but couldn't name my child that. Submitted by: mon

Hidden Tracks:

Badu made a video for the song, and it was released as a single in support of her NEW AMERYKAH PART ONE (4TH WORLD WAR) album, but it is not listed on the cover or the packaging. It is the uncredited 11th track. Some fans felt the single had nothing to do with the rest of the album, which has a concept/theme running through it, and some claimed they felt cheated because they wanted the album to sound like "Honey".
