I must admit, every once in a while, I get a review wrong. Hey, some music takes some time to sink in, and Janelle Monae’s The ArchAndroid was one of those albums. I’d probably change my grade from the original B- to a solid B+.
At any rate, Monae’s long-awaited third album looks to be closer to reality thanks to the release of the new single “Q.U.E.E.N.” The synth-drenched funk track features Janelle’s kindred spirit Erykah Badu. Rap break? Kick ass. Are these two gonna go on tour together? That would be one to watch, for sure.
