It’s time. It’s time for the world to hear how Janelle Monae follows up her debut opus The ArchAndroid. The cascading multi-suite epic remains one of the most impressive debuts in recent history, but how would Monae continue to build her creative legacy? Well, teaming up with Erykah Badu, Miguel and his Purple Holiness is probably a good place to start. Adding Solange and Esperanza Spalding into the mix can’t hurt much either. The anticipation is now over as Monae has served up a full album stream of The Electric Lady, a 19-track body of work drenched in her unique brand of future funk and electronic soul. Waste no time, get into this.
Sidenote: Janelle and Prince = Mindfucked.
