If you came here expecting me to drag another artist…leave now. I’ve already admitted my undying fan-ism when Ms. Monae slayed me with Q.U.E.E.N. and I’ve been playing catch up to her music ever since. Consider me a devoted fan now.
So sorry, there will be no dragging in this post. Only ridiculous amounts of praise about how Janelle just dropped another hot track and announced The Electric Lady Tour (while making time to interview and appear on the covers of both Vibe Vixen and Billboard)
The talented singer thought she would first blow minds by collaborating with another hot singer currently on the rise (ever since he laid the WWE Smack Down on a fan at the Billboard Music Awards), Miguel.
The two singers linked up to make Primetime; a slow track that compares the idea of prime time-“a block of broadcast programming during the evening,” to spending “quality-time” with a loved one.
Unlike the grooves and funk we received with Q.U.E.E.N. and Dance Apocalyptic, P.T. is more mellow, and has a R&B flow that blends well with the singers’ harmony.
Although I’ll have to go out of my way to get use this track (not that I don’t like it, it just doesn’t slay like Q.U.E.E.N.), Monae has already hit her fans with another treat- a tour!
So on top of releasing a new track with Miguel, unveiling the artwork for her new 2-disc album The Electric Lady (due out Sept 10th), appearing on magazine covers and being more talented than your faves…
Ms. Monae has delivered with the Electric Lady Tour to help promote her album! And guess where the first stop of the tour is going be?
Janelle kicks off her tour in the City of Brotherly Love on October 13th, at the Electric Factory (makes sense the Electric Lady would begin her tour domination in a venue with a similar name, flawless)!
