Janelle Monáe

The new album from Janelle Monáe drops May 18. Her songs brim with wailing vocals and attitude and a couple tracks even get that special touch from collaborators Big Boi and Of Montreal. Monáe's first single off The ArchAndroid showcases her eccentric hybrid of jazz and soul style. She takes a hurried soul beat and exchanges back and forth between sassy and maniacal on the vocals, only briefly relinquishing the spotlight for a spastic horn soli and a smugly casual few bars from Big Boi.
