Heavy Rotation: Janelle Monáe

After arguing incessantly about the best albums of 2010 thus far with several friends, this seems to be the artist everyone can agree on. It's a shame that I perpetually discover people sleeping on Janelle Monáe. She conquers everything from soul, hip-hop, bubblegum pop, psychedelic rock, funk, folk and all that's in between. The ArchAndroid ties all these genres together in two suites seamlessly, showcasing clever songwriting, scream fests and subtle ballads together like the breakfast club at a cocktail party. Check her out in a major city near you this September.

This track reminds me of Lauryn Hill mixed with Donovan. Yeah seriously.
