Janelle Monae ft. Miguel - "Primetime"

After revealing the upbeat yet socially aware singles "Q.U.E.E.N." and "Dance Apocalyptic," Janelle Monae reveals a smoother side of her forthcoming album The Electric Lady with the Miguel duet "Primetime."  As two artists who are highly influenced and in awe of Prince, I'm almost sure this is a track he'd be proud of.

Stream "PrimeTime" below, and hit the jump to view The Electric Lady's official album cover and track list!

Janelle Monae - "Dance Apocalyptic"

Along with today's announcement that The Electric Lady will hit stores on September 10th, Janelle Monae premiered the album's second single, "Dance Apocalyptic." Once you hit play, the title strangely makes total sense...

Goodie Mob ft. Janelle Monae - "Special Education"

After premiering "Fight To Win" last year, Goodie Mob relaunches their album Age Against The Machine with their new single "Special Education." Hearing Cee-Lo, T-Mo, Khujo Goodie & Big Gipp all rhyming together takes me back, and I'm excited to cop the album when hits stores on June 18th.

Also lending her vocals to "Special Education" is Dungeon extended family and "Q.U.E.E.N." Janelle Monae.

[Music Video] Janelle Monae ft. Erykah Badu - "Q.U.E.E.N."

Janelle Monae took to BET's 106th & Park yesterday to premiere the video for "Q.U.E.E.N." and to be honest, no other word than "electric" comes to mind when describing it. Directed by Solange's beau Alan Ferguson, Janelle and Erykah Badu Badoula Oblongata are historic icons preserved in a museum who are brought back to life by young rebels.

Hit play and enjoy the sights, and check out Janelle after the jump as she turns up the energy at 106 to another level. The release date for Janelle's sophomore album The Electric Lady isn't out yet, but "Q.U.E.E.N." is available on iTunes now!

Janelle Monae ft. Erykah Badu - "Q.U.E.E.N."

I know I don't speak for all the other people archandroids out there, but the fact that Janelle Monae is ready to present her next album/suite The Electric Lady, let alone release a collaboration with Erykah Badu, has made my year.

Stream "Q.U.E.E.N." below, and I'll keep you posted on Twitter when the single hits iTunes for download. NEW JANELLE!!

[Video] Janelle Monae Covers Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing" With The Roots On Jimmy Fallon

There aren't many musicians in the industry right now one can trust to honorably cover a Jimi Hendrix classic, but Janelle Monae and The Roots are just the people for the job. Paying tribute to the late guitarist's legendary catalogue, Janelle takes on "Little Wing" alongside Questlove, the rest of the band, and her guitarist Kellindo who channeled the spirit of Hendrix and completely SHOWED OUT.
