yes you're right even though a lot of people tend to see it as sexual reference..but people are usually really slow yesterday when she was talking about androids on twitter people thought she was talking about the phone confused the world is not ready she's ahead of her time

[Edited 9/9/13 1:08am]

Or maybe she is a bit behind? The term android refers to more than just a robot these days.

no she isn't cool too long to explain but she was very clear and by the way her alter ego cindi is an android everyone that listened to at least one her records know this and even more tragic these people were calling themself her fans...

People simply don't bother these days to pay attention, read carefully, do research, and--above all--LISTEN! razz lol

I didn't mean behind in regards to the conversation on twitter but in regards to your comment saying she is ahead of her time, because this android thing has moved on to mean new things nowadays and her android shtick is a 30+ year old idea. Ever heard of Kraftwerk?

Um. Totally different music. Before Kraftwerk was Metropolis in 1927.
Lots of musicians base their ideas on things they grew up loving. For example, Prince's schtick was based on JB, Little Richard and a host of others. Now D'Angelo is a stone cold Prince ripoff now, so are you calling everyone out on old schtick?? (just as examples)
She is still ahead of her time conceptually and musically - and taking chances that most artists are not right now.

"Musically I wanted to create an album that was rooted in R&B but make sure I was capturing the diversity in R&B music," she explained. "I was inspired by Bo Diddley, who inspired the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis (Presley). This was the leader, the pioneer of R&B. (The track) 'Dance Apocalyptic' was very much a response to being inspired by him."

Having Prince on "Givin' 'Em What They Love," meanwhile, "was an honor. He's been so excited about my career, and I don't take that for granted. He's a mentor to me -- he does take the time to mentor other artists, not just myself. So he took me on tour with him. It was very organic for us to work together, but I know he does not collaborate with everybody that he performs with, and I don't take that for granted. And I got the opportunity to produce him, so to present the ideas and see it through, I was just honored that he trusted me."

Just bought the CD today. The Prince track is easily the best song he's been involved in for a long time. He's got that sleaziness of yesteryear oozing from his voice.
Janelle is light years ahead of Prince at the moment. Her song crafting and production team could really bring Prince out of his creative shell.
I'd love him to work with her on a full album. It would work too. The old spacefunkster passing the baton on to the new.
Do it Prince. Otherwise twats like Robin Thicke will pastiche you until your legacy is meaningless.

This album is SMOKIN'. I will be buying this. And despite the talk of the Prince duet on "Givin Em What They Want", sounds like he's on more than that lone track.



Lovin' the sound.


Ditto!! I can hear Prince's influence & vibe on a number of the Songs, or maybe it's just my imagination! 2 me, Prime Time has a taste of Wherever u go, Whatever u do, either musically or in the song's message, maybe a little?

On first listen, instantly loved Give 'em what they love, Prime Time, Look in2 my eyes, Victory, Sally Ride & Dorothy Dandridge eyes. In fact the whole album is incredible & will only get better the more listen for sure.

A+ record.

No are U? This is a first Prince letting someone produce him, and it turned out great and all. But to make comments about his legacy being replaced by someone like Robin Thicke if he doesn't continue is uncalled for. Prince is doing just fine doing him. This year alone is proof of that..

-------- Put down your crack!!! Janelle is good but she is not at P's level yet. He has some great stuff out now and I think we are going to see and hear a lot of great stuff from P. No comment whatsoever on the Robin Thicke b.s.

The two of you are loony tunes. Her album pisses on anything Prince has produced in 20 years.
You're not commenting on the Robin Thicke because you obviously don't understand the point.
I am endlessly reading comparisons of the talentless shit to Prince.
Take your heads out of Prince's anal sphincter and smell the good shit out there.

Before Metropolis there was The wizard of Oz with the tinman...she even reminds me a bit of a mix of metropolis and tinman in the way she dresses and moves.

Try to engage your brain. I am blatantly not claiming Robin Thicke as a worthy successor. The words twat and pastiche are not exactly complementary.
Go and express your misplaced mocking to the idiots all over the Org that are constantly comparing Blurred Lines to Kiss.
If Prince doesn't put out something challenging then it's idiots like that that will taint the legacy of Prince's art.
Ok?

Let's not go overboard here. Monae's new album is good, but not groundbreaking. Big chunks of it could be considered 70's soul pastiches. Some of the songs Prince has released recently - even this year - are more individual and aesthetically sophisticated. And "Givin' Em What You Love" is a pretty basic rock number.

The wooh is on the one!

I agree...when prince's verse starts its compelling....he hasnt sounded better in years.....that sharp falsetto clear as glass...underlined by the fact that he's singing something that approximates a half decent lyric makes your ears prick up.......good stuff

Prince's unique talents stand out more when he's collaborating with more ordinary artists (playing with the 3rd Eye girl has the same effect). When he goes solo and is surrounded by his own brilliance you don't always notice the artistry, because there's so much going on.

The wooh is on the one!

I don't agree. Everything Prince has released this year has been devoid of sophistication or aesthetics. I don't hear any of that at all in pap like Screwdriver or Breakfast Can Wait. They both sound as if they've been recorded on a 1987 Hinari tape deck.
