Pretty exciting news! This will be Janelle Monáe’s first full-length album in five years. The release date hasn’t been announced yet, but the album will feature an “emotion picture” narrative film project that will be released in select theaters before the opening of “Black Panther.”
“Monae never does anything by half, and while the teaser gives little indication about the storyline behind the film—the clip is an odd mix including flashes of love, totalitarianism, club scenes, and a wild-looking floating car—it is compelling and ties into the futurist themes that Monae has used during her entire recording career.”

Obsessed with “Django Jane”! Hope that’s up for Short-Form Music Video, among many others. Excellent first two songs!March 1, 2018 at 11:53 am #1202503536
The first two songs and videos are excellent and the new album drops 4/27.
This should be a great era.March 1, 2018 at 5:54 pm #1202503718
Honey, maybe Janelle Monáe can squeak out a Best R&B Performance win.April 11, 2018 at 7:09 pm #1202528227
I’m not too sure how I feel about Janelle’s new music sonically.
But the visuals are definitely serving.
I like “Pynk” better than the other two releases so far. Even if the Vagina pants in the video are a bit corny.
She’s definitely putting effort into this new era and I can appreciate her artistry.April 27, 2018 at 3:58 am #1202536329
it’s looking like great reviews so far! except for one from the guardian who calls it “vagina monologues from a far-off planet,” which i think is not the negative he thinks it is and maybe not too far off from what she was attempting haha.
plus, look at the type of guy reviewing a janelle monáe album. i don’t entirely take his word on it. I’m getting my first listen to it and it’s everything the singles promised it would be.
