Love is in the air for Erykah Badu. The R&B/soul icon appears to be in a new relationship with writer-producer Carl Jones.

On Thursday (March 31), Carl Jones, whose writing credits include The Boondocks, Black Dynamite and more, went on his Twitter page to share a black-and-white image of him and Badu snuggling together in the bed.

“When she's your love, your best friend, your creative partner, your n----, your...@fatbellybella,” he tweeted.

Then Badu tweeted back on her account, "...your shrink, your cook, your barber, your belly dancer..."

Aww, isn't that cute?

Badu's past lovers are some of the most creative rappers in the game: Andre 3000, Common, the D.O.C. and Jay Electronica. The 45-year-old Texas native tends to keep her relationships very private so we don't expect any her or Jones to detail every aspect of their courtship on social media.

Nevertheless, we want to wish Erykah Badu and Carl Jones a happy and loving relationship.
