There’s been a common theme with most of the music I’ve been listening to lately – it’s all on the slower side of things. Actually, in general, I tend to listen to slower music than uptempo tracks, but everyone it’s nice to switch it up.
Janelle Monáe is the perfect way to do that. Her sophomore album, The Electric Lady released in September, but I didn’t give it a listen until this week (big mistake!) The whole thing is pretty entertaining, and I’m a fan of anything featuring Prince (he has a cameo on Give Em What They Love).
One of my favorites is the title track, Electric Lady, featuring Solange. It’s just so, so much fun. Plus, who wouldn’t live lyrics like this: You got a classic kind of crazy/But you know just who you are/You got the look the Gods agree they wanna see.
