Janelle Monáe – A New Sound For a New Day

August 28, 2008

It’s about time a vocalist came out that had that “throw back” feeling yet still spoke about issues affecting us today. So much is going on right now….and this young lady is a product of that. With influences from various artists (you can hear so many people within her…I can’t even name names), she snatches those issues, makes them tangible and shakes them off with a voice of power and innocence, while her beats call upon a futuristic robotic glitch.  The Lady is IT.  Honestly, she reminds me of Anita Baker, but 2008 style…..
Simply amazing.  I just bought the album too.  You should as well.  She has bills just like you and I :).  Check Janelle’s site out! Buy the album! It’s available on itunes if you can’t wait for the physical release.  Thanks to Think Pink Radio for the heads up on this one…..nice!
