great news.

I was already really looking forward to the album coming out. Queen was a fantastic first taste of the album.

September could be one hell of a month if The new d'angelo also comes out and lives up to it's hype.

lol it's in part an homage to Hendrix electric ladyland and also has some connections to her electric live performances and to her android alter ego of her previous work..

With all due respect to you madison, how can you say that? I just don't see the type of energy that Prince and Janelle have, or the music they make very often, if at all lately. What is it that you find boring and why so negative on new music we haven't heard yet? Different strokes for different folks I guess, but this would be my Dream Duo!! guitar music

this duo sounds very promising yes and ok he is not at his best nowadays but he's still way better than the majority of artists on charts right now...and janelle is one of the most creative and talented artists out there so we could be on something great here... wink

I thnk its a great title. Re: what you said in your bost..alsoto how the lyrics end Queen. ...which....i handt heard till today. I knew she had some cutz coming out but sue got out on the back burner while i ws apartment hunting in New Orleans. ( Found me a joint off of St. bernard...sharing a shotgun with a homie...broke it off with the crazy biolar ex ...bipolar aint no joke...)

So withball that drama over...i can sit d o wn a burn turu somebnew tunes.

Dontbtell anyone.....but im diggintha t mariah/miguel duet too...SHHHHH! B quiet.


Back to monae....my ears r getting all wet from her. i can't wait for some new tunes....Mushrooms and Roses make me obscenely curious as to what Miss B & W and Mr. Purple can put together. Cuz Q.u.e.e.n is groove-a-fuckin-licious. It seems like its her controversy. Has the image questions/statements....as well and mission statement....great tune.

I like Monae and all but at the risk of sounding like a sexist, I wish he'd play with some male musicians - non-r&b at that too. Why are his pet projects all women? Ok that bit on Common's album Electric Circus doesn't count. Neither does the very simple guitar part on Stevie's last album count.

Janelle Monae

Beyonce

Nicole What's her name

Macy Gray

Rachelle Farrell

Angie Stone

He said with his own two lips that he has a preference for the female voice vs. a males...maybe that plays a heavy part in that preference. And when people say janelle is R&B, I usually justsilently disagre. I dont get an R&B vibe from Arch af all. Crow aint r n'b...stefani aint rn'b...bush aint rn'b...kravitz arguably isnt rn'b...who knowz what george clinton is...chuck d aint rn'b...i think the people he's worked with is almost as diverse as his listening style is. I know he hasnt worked with her, but Prince is, or at least was, on Joni's jock like the tightest strap that ever was. Never mind the people he is currently playing with . I will give u that elixer and milk and j iney were primarily rn'b efforts...iunno...it tripz me out when someone makes a summation, then the very sentence after the summation, they themselves cite several variables that invalidate said summation.

I know I will get alot of hate for saying this, but her music does nothing for me-cant get into it at all. Im sure she is happy to work with Prince though and I wish her well. Just not my cup o tea.

I'm not a fan of hers either. She's a beautiful lady, but her music is dull as a case kniife to me.
