    I didn't get into her until about 2007-2008. Looking forward to The Arch Android which is set to be released on the 18th of May.

    Thanks for posting.

    Many moons is still my favorite out of her songs so far. Did you know she used to work all the time with Outkast? I think her time with them had a definite impact on her style.

    She is VERY short, but makes up for it with her total enthusiasm for her craft

    Janelle is the cutest thing ever. One receives that distinction when they rock a high water tuxedo on purpose.



    Oh, I am so in love with her and this song. She's definitely one of the best.

    I was trying to think of a reason for that, but I can't Maybe it has to do with the fact that the majority of female artists that become popular nowadays tend to be of the tall and curvy nature. At least in the hip-hop/r&b world...

    She always reminds me of Audrey Hepburn with her big innocent eyes and her boyish charm

    Is she still signed with Diddy? That douche can't seem to keep anyone's career afloat but his own.

    I just saw the Tightrope video on MTV and it knocked me on my butt! Great song, and I couldn't believe the dancing. This video was definitely a breath of fresh air.

    I'm a little disappointed I heard about her so late. I'm always late to the party.

    JM is easily one of the interesting, eclectic and innovative artists on the scene today and incalculably superior to Lady Ga Ga imho...which is why she may never be a superstar LOL. I saw her last October in New Orleans at Voodoofest, and while I wished her song set was a bit more varied (was a tad heavy on the hip hop, wanted some more of the funk, r&b/soul and even rock she displays on her cd's), she has a great live voice and stage presence to spare (especially impressive given her size), she's also so darned cute.

    Re: Janelle Monae

    I don't get why she and Lady Gaga are even mentioned in the same sentence in this thread - they're not the same genre, they're not the same talent, they're not attempting to reach the same audience. Why people do that, i'll never know - it'll be like me stating that Angelspit will never have the mainstream appeal of Britney Spears.

    This (gripe) stated, i found Janelle Monae on that laugh of a reality show "I Wanna Work For Diddy", and while i really do like her... she's just a product of Diddy's machine. I wish she wasn't, and there are parts of her that obviously aren't, but i know for a fact that Diddy - once again - put his hands in creating something that will get him a new paycheck... and then she'll be forgotten(again, as she had sort of a career before this).

    But when all that is said and done, i really like the EP, and i really hope The Arch Android does well(LOVE Cold War).

    Janelle MonŠe Crosses Boundaries With 'ArchAndroid'

    Janelle MonŠe has no desire to define her sound.

    "It's genre-less, because it has an energy about it that genres can't really live up to, so I don't want to diminish it by trying to restrict it," the eccentric 24-year-old says about "The ArchAndroid," due May 18 on Wondaland Arts Society/Bad Boy Recordings.

    In fact, MonŠe's album is so genre-less that to promote it this summer she will open up for R&B singer Erykah Badu in May and June, perform at Lilith Fair and tour in Europe and North America with alternative band Of Montreal.

    Although catering to diverse audiences, Atlantic Records senior VP of marketing Eric Wong says reaching these different markets won't be difficult. "Janelle's style melds pop with a mash-up of soul, funk and rock that will translate across all audiences whether touring with Erykah Badu, Of Montreal or performing at Lilith Fair," he says, adding that MonŠe has previously toured with No Doubt, Paramore and Raphael Saadiq. "Janelle proves that innovative music has no boundaries."

    "The ArchAndroid" veers all over the place-ranging from "Wondaland," which describes the whimsical, artificial reality of the same title that MonŠe has created for herself and her creative team; "Overtures," influenced by Walt Disney with "symphonies, strings and horns"; "Dance or Die," a Fela Kuti-inspired track featuring Saul Williams; and "Cold War," which MonŠe says "reveals what the ArchAndroid looks like."

    The first single is the bouncy, bass-driven "Tightrope," which features the album's co-executive producer, OutKast's Big Boi. The song's video was shot in an unlikely place: a sanitarium.

    "It was filmed at Palace of the Dogs, which is a place where a lot of great artists have studied, from Jimi Hendrix to Prince and Miles Davis," MonŠe says. "Dancing is forbidden there because it leads to magical powers that are illegal. So, the 'Tightrope' was a very rebellious dance that I came up with."

    To roll out the clip, which was directed by Wendy Morgan (Gnarls Barkley), Wong says the label "offered fans various trailers that served as teasers, with content that people have never seen before," including "scenes from the making of the record, footage of the tour and a tutorial of the 'Tightrope' dance." The trailers premiered on JanelleMonae.com as well as blogs, various online sites and social networks.

    Although she offers little detail, MonŠe says her muse for this album-which is a combination of Suites II and III of her 2008 EP "Metropolis"-is Cindi Mayweather, her alter-ego. She also suggests the album is inspired by colors and dreams.

    "If I say I want a song to feel bold red, or if I had a song come to me in my dreams, it usually means there was a lot of color in it," she says. "What I tried to do is make it as vivid as I was able to when I recorded it and capture as much as I could."

    MonŠe, who recently wrapped an 11-city trek and is slated to make appearances on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "The Mo'Nique Show," "Last Call With Carson Daly" and "Lopez Tonight," says she has embraced her uniqueness and hopes others will continue to do so as well.

    "This album has a lot of psychedelic moments and sometimes feels like James Bond or Frida Kahlo, or some of the other surrealists I've enjoyed," she says. "It also deals with self-realization and the things I've realized about myself within this project have made me unafraid to make mistakes. I coined the term 'emotional picture of the mind.' I'm just blessed for the supporters who have been waiting to finally hear the songs I've had in my dreams."

    Giant Step presents SVEDKA Vodka Session #1: Janelle MonŠe with DJ Moni
    Tuesday, May 18 2010
    TBA (To Be Announced), New York NY


    On Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, celebrating the release of her hotly anticipated album, The ArchAndroid, Giant Step proudly presents the first installment of the second SVEDKA Vodka Sessions series, with Janelle MonŠe.

    This event is free, but strictly RSVP. Please RSVP and the venue will be emailed to you when announced.

    A ground-breaking, genre-blurring singer, songwriter, producer, and performer, Janelle MonŠe’s inventive style melds a refined pop sensibility with an extraordinary postmodern mash-up of soul, funk, and rock ‘n’ roll.

    The ArchAndroid, which will be released May 18th, follows MonŠe’s two acclaimed EPs, 2008’s METROPOLIS: THE CHASE SUITE (SPECIAL EDITION) and METROPOLIS: SUITE I OF IV, both of which received extensive critical praise upon their initial releases. The ArchAndroid was produced by Janelle MonŠe, Chuck Lightning, Nate Wonder & Sean “Diddy” Combs with co-executive producer Antwan “Big Boi” Patton. It features appearances by an array of talented artists including "Big Boi" of OutKast, who is featured on the infectious lead single "Tightrope," as well as renowned poet Saul Williams, the psychedelic dance-punk troupe Of Montreal, the punk prophets Deep Cotton, and the Wondaland ArchOrchestra.

    In addition to releasing her album, Ms. MonŠe, who has developed a reputation for her incredibly dynamic live shows, will be joining none other than Erykah Badu on her "Out My Mind, Just In Time" tour in a number of cities across North America and partake in this summer’s much anticipated 2010 Lilith Tour.

    Wow, that was beautiful. From what I heard in those snippets, I'm anticipating for ArchAndroid to sound unlike anything I've ever heard before. This is definitely going on my must-have list.

    I cannot wait to hear Sir Greendown, BaBopBye Ya and Oh Maker in their entirety.

    This leaked last week and it's really good

    Janelle Monae: Dreaming In Science Fiction

    Janelle Monae is hard to pin down.

    She plays indie-rock festivals and the R&B circuit. She sports tuxedos and a sky-high pompadour. And her musical influences seem to include a blend of James Brown, David Bowie, Nona Hendryx and Kraftwerk.

    Her musical journey began in Kansas City, where she was pained by her father's drug addiction but also pushed by a mother who focused on education.


    "A lot of the people that I was hanging out with didn't really have a lot of goals," she says. "And I felt myself ending up walking dead. ... I just think my own ambition would not allow me to sit on the gifts that my creator had given me. And so that's when I realized that I could actually go away. I could go to New York and lead by example, and show that just because you come from a small little town in Kansas ó which is [in] the poorest county [in the state], Wyandotte County, that's where I grew up in ó that you definitely have a choice."

    Now based in Atlanta, Monae has finished a new release: an epic, full-length concept album called The ArchAndroid. It's an extension of the imaginary intergalactic world she created in her breakout EP, Metropolis: The Chase Suite.

    A Fantastic Metropolis

    In an interview with All Things Considered host Michele Norris, Monae talked about the role of fantasy and magic in her music.

    "I believe that imagination inspires nations," she says. "It's something that I live by. And I've always been a lover of Walter E. Disney, Salvador Dali, surrealism, Octavia Butler ... you know, science fiction in general."

    Monae has gathered a crew of fellow creative thinkers ó "thrivals," she calls them ó in Atlanta's Wondaland Arts Society, an artist collective and her record label. The organization's ranks include visual artists, graphic novelists and screenwriters.

    "I think it's very important that there's another blueprint to how an artist can actually break into the music industry and shift the energy ó in a very positive way, of course," Monae says. "So, yeah, we wear black and white. We wear tuxedos. And music is our weapon."

    Dreaming In String Arrangements

    The ArchAndroid is filled with many varying production techniques. From song to song, Monae's voice might be masked or modulated in different ways.

    "This project dealt with a lot of self-realization," she says. "And in the process of me telling the story, and helping come up with the music, I just learned a lot about myself. ... So if my voice has a different texture to it, or if the tone switches up, I think the characters in Metropolis were moving through me. And I had to expose them."

    Monae says that many of the songs on the record came to her in dreams. Luckily, she had her iPhone by her bedside, so she could wake up and dictate her ideas.

    "I was just so anxious," she says. "As soon as I would get up, it's like, 'Oh, man. This song was absolutely gorgeous. I cannot panic, or I'm going to forget the string arrangements. I'm going to forget how my voice is supposed to sound.' So I would hop up ó if it were 6 in the morning, 9 in the morning, you name it. I had to make myself available. And that's what I think is very important as an artist: You have to listen [when] your maker is saying, 'OK, you need to say this.' "

    Emotion Picture

    With so many textures to The ArchAndroid, it takes on something of a cinematic vision. It's being marketed the way a summer blockbuster might be, complete with a trailer, movielike posters in cities nationwide.

    "We like to think of The ArchAndroid as an 'emotion picture' for the mind," Monae says. "I do believe that it will transform you. You won't know it; you'll have to listen to it maybe a couple times. But I think it prepares your palate for more diverse music."

    Of course, while the music is informed by an overarching artistic concept, Monae says that she and her team made sure to make fun songs for people to dance to.

    "I also want to make it clear as well," she says, "one of the first responsibilities was to make sure that we created some jammin' music."

    ^NICE tribute to James Brown!!!

    Ok, so i did pick up this CD - legally, haha.

    Suite II happens to be every bit of amazing, with the big exception of Mushrooms and Roses, which i just plain don't like all too much. Maybe it'll grow on me, but it sounds like... you need to be on 'shrooms to appreciate where she was going. Oh, Maker kinda sounds out of place as well, but it's a good some regardless.

    Suite III. I was less impressed with this - 3 tracks i loved(BaBopByeYa is a MUST LISTEN), and then there were three that were either disappointing(57821) or i just outright didn't like(Make The Bus - i knew i wouldn't like it thru the snippets... and i was right).

    All in all, it's a great album, worth the buy... and hell, if nothing else, it gets The Mafia's Seal Of Approvalmentarism!

    Re: Janelle Monae

    Not only is The ArchAndroid the best album of the year, it's the best album I've ever heard before in my life. It's pure magic on wax.

    I agree with Jy, I believe Janelle's only misstep on the album was the Of Montreal collaboration, "Make the Bus". Which really isn't that bad of a song. If it was in the hands of someone on a lesser artistic status than Janelle, say a Rihanna or a Lady Gaga, that song would've have produced some fantastic, interesting results. But for it to be sequenced between the amazingly beautiful "Neon Valley Street" and the whimsical "Wondaland", "Make the Bus" comes across as disruptive filler. Maybe it's because the lead singer from that band has such a distinctive voice and has such a large role on the song, it sounds more like an Of Monreal song than it does a Janelle Monae song. The same magic she displays on the previous tracks is sorely missing on that one. Out of all the ArchAndroid's eighteen tracks, to me that song is the only track that feels like it doesn't belong on there.

    With that said, despite that minor blemish, ArchAndroid is indeed a perfect album. Imo, the entire thing from start to finish is a must listen. A person definitely shouldn't leave this earth without first hearing The Suite Overtures, Say You'll Go and BaBopBye Ya at least a good dozen times.

    There's not an artist out today who is as brilliant and fearless as Janelle Monae. She's in a class all to her own. I swear after listening to this album I'm prepared to have her tuxedo-wearing android babies. The woman is awesome.

    But I swear I'm kicking her square in the twat if she pulls a Lauryn Hill and never releases another album again. As perfect as I think your debut is, I need much more of your magnificence in the years to come, Janelle.

    I just listened to Cold War and I'm really ancious to hear more of her. The song does sound absolutely like something that could have been on Gnarls Barkley's last album. But that's a great thing!

    will proceed to listen to more of her stuff

    ok, second listen, Cold War is extremely similar to



    but it still doesn't take much away rom the appeal of Cold War, it certainly is a distinct song. and I'm happy to repeat myself, a potential Gnarls Barkley influence is definitely a good thing

    She should tour with Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. Would be a helluva show.
    Well, one thing's clear: your favorite TV show is "Alias".

    ^Yes, some non-black people watch BET, just like some non-white people watch MTV and The Hallmark Channel, non-women watch Lifetime and non-men watch Spike TV.

    Thank goodness that my brain is always on. I don't have to remember where the switch is.

    I watch BET (mainly The Mo'Nique Show) and its sister station Centric (really likedModel City). I saw an hour of the BET Awards. I'm taping the repeat so I can see the Prince tribute and El Debarge doing his group's hits.

    I saw her in concert in June. She opened for Erykah Badu. She's pretty and she can sing. I like that she maintained high energy on stage, even though she was alloted only a small portion of the stage for her performance.

    Janelle MonŠe, the saddle-shoed, pompadoured singer-songer behind ‘Tightrope’ and ‘Cold War’, has announced her new album, entitled The Electric Lady, via animated GIF http://www.jmonae.com/sites/jmonae.w...?itok=D828WzOD.

    On April 22 (at exactly 7:54pm EST, apparently), she’ll release ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’, a single that features Erykah Badu. The queen of neo-soul has said that MonŠe is keeping her on her “A-game:” “Secretly, I feel that I have to go out and crush her. We’re best friends, though: she’ll only find that out by reading this.”
