If y’all haven’t given Nu-Soul chanteuse par excellence Janelle Monae’s thoroughly flaw-free sophomore extravaganza ‘The Electric Lady‘ a listen – you’re easily missing out one of the most stunning albums to have been released this year!
Fact – Nobody brings back the magic of Prince and 70’s Funk/Soul quite like Janelle Monae.
The album roared in at # 5 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart a few weeks ago – her highest chart position so far. And oh – she earned a coveted MTV VMA for Best Art Direction for the stunning video for the first single ‘Q.U.E.E.N‘ featuring her idol and Neo-Soul Goddess Supreme Mizz Erykah Badu.
The third official single from the album – ‘Prime Time‘ – featuring R’n’B baby-maker Miguel has finally gotten a much-deserved video-treatment. Check out the Alan Ferguson-directed clip, a love story between Cindi Mayweather (Janelle Monae) and Joey Vice (Miguel) shot at the Electric Sheep nightclub, right here.
As always, Mizz Monae pushes the envelope with her concepts and visuals! A coupla well deserved Grammy nods later this year maybe?
