Janelle Monae just strikes me as such a classy woman, and it’s much deeper than the tux outfits. Electric Lady’s title track serves as a fitting preview for the upcoming album: groovy and fun. And in addition to demonstrating her class through sound, Janelle’s versatility is on full display for all to see. Her singing is great as always, and she even spits a quick verse to help close “Electric Lady” out.
And with Solange clearly only in the background, you know exactly who’s running the show here.
Update: Audio removed at the label’s request. Buy the album when it releases.
