Janelle Monae's "Q.U.E.E.N." -- Today's Song of the Day - OurVinyl

Janelle Monae’s “Q.U.E.E.N.”

Song Of The Day

Janelle Monae has been biding her time for the follow-up to her monster funky pop-soul 2010 release The Archandroid, and a couple days ago her first single “Q.U.E.E.N.” was released, featuring the inimitable and ever-welcome Erykah Badu.

The track carries a much more overt synth presence in the 80’s vein, but Monae’s patented soulful self-harmonizing and surprisingly awesome rap finishing the track anchors the single in the present. The Electric Lady, Janelle Monae’s latest LP, is expected out any month now, but info is decidedly sparse.
