Erykah Badu is canceling her Cincinnati tour stop.

Sorry, Erykah Badu fans — you'll have to wait a little longer to see your favorite chanteuse.

The woman who widely has been called the "queen of Neo-Soul" is canceling her upcoming Cincinnati show due to a "scheduling conflict," a press release says. Badu was supposed to perform Friday, Nov. 5, at Heritage Bank Center, with backup from Goodie Mob and Scarface.

Badu will continue with her remaining tour dates, the release notes. There's no information about a rescheduled date here.

Tickets will be refunded through their original points of purchase.

Badu’s visit to the Queen City was supposed to be the final stop of a 21-date tour that begins Sept. 11 in Sterling Heights, Michigan. She last came to Cincinnati in 2018 to headline Cincinnati Funk Fest.

Rolling Stone ranks Badu's 2000 album Mama's Gun as No. 158 on its "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list, calling Badu "a force of nature." 

Badu's tour celebrates the 20th anniversary of Mama’s Gun as well as the 10th anniversary of her project New Amerykah Part Two: Return Of The Ankh and the fifth anniversary of her mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone.
