Janelle Monae Teases New Album As Prince Remixes Her Song
The teaser sees Monàe performing the 1960s-inspired pop track on an American Bandstand-style stage in front of a live audience, complete with backup dancers and retro-style get-ups.
The song's sound stands in contrast to funky Electric Lady lead single "Q.U.E.E.N.," which Prince recently remixed. The Purple One debuted his version of the girl-power track, which features Erykah Badu, on his 3rdEyeGirl TV live stream Wednesday (June 26), taking the beat up a notch to transform the song into a bona fide dance jam.
Monàe recently revealed to Billboard that Prince will also be lending his vocals to a track on the album, saying the two have become "great friends."
"It's a beautiful thing to have a friend — someone who cares about your career, and wants to see you go far and to push boundaries and shake up the world — give whatever they possibly can to the cause," she said in the interview. more on this story
