Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monáe

This lady is cool.

This lady has style.

This lady’s new album The ArchAndroid comes out on May 18 via Wondaland Arts Society/Bad Boy.

Reasons why you should consider purchasing The ArchAndroid:

  • Big Boi, SAUL WILLIAMS, OF MONTREAL and a couple Wondaland acts are featured on the album.
  • “Prince hails Janelle, saying, ‘She is so smart.'”
  • In an interview with Interview Magazine she said, “It’s a big universe, to stay in one tiny place is doing a disservice to yourself.” And then, “It’s unfortunate that a lot of people think African-American female artists are monolithically R&B this-or-that. I don’t have to do anything by default.”
  • Her “Many Moons” video is just too good.
  • The concept of her records is about a female android, Cindi Mayweather, on the run in a futuristic police state.
