Description



    Atlanta-based Janelle Monae has crept through the ranks of the music industry to become one of the hottest artists, with celebrity fans such as Diddy, Prince and Missy Elliott all rejoicing in her eclectic style and mesmerising live performances.

    Janelle Monae is undoubtedly, an experience. She's a quirky and charismatic, and her ground-breaking style crosses musical genres in a captivating postmodern merging of soul, funk, and rock 'n' roll.

    With her new album "The Electric Lady", Janelle Monae more than affirms the rapturous acclaim that greeted her now-legendary 2010 debut, "The Archandroid." The new album sees the inimitable singer/songwriter/producer/ performer creating an epic new "emotion picture" inspired by her raw personal dreams and experiences and the stories of such courageous, powerful women as groundbreaking icons Dorothy Dandridge, Sally Ride and Cindi Mayweather. The musical language is equally innovative, an urgent, inventive future-pop fraught with mind-melting funk, rebel raps, punk energy, soaring guitars, day-glo synthesizers, psychedelic soul string arrangements, and Monaé’s own astonishing, utterly idiosyncratic artistry.

    "Q.U.E.E.N" which features Grammy Award winner Erykah Badu is a track that has been described as having prince like guitar tones, accompanied by funky synths and Janelle's signature vocals. Other featured collaborations on the album includes Miguel and such like-minded artists as Solange, Esperanza Spalding, and her lifelong hero, the one and only Prince.
