How freakin’ adorable is Janelle Monáe?! She’s on the latest cover of BUST magazine (August / September 2013), looking as cute as ever, her style is beyond impeccable. I’ve been a huge fan of Ms. Monae’s ever since she released her EP, Metropolis: Suite I (The Chase), back in 2007. Now she is gearing up to release her second studio album, The Electric Lady, on September 10th which features the totally kick-ass singles, “Q.U.E.E.N.” (featuring the lovely Erykah Badu) and “Dance Apocalyptic.” I’m super excited to hear the album in full, it’s bound to be one of this 2013’s strongest releases!
“The ArchAndroid focused on self-realization: realizing your superpower and the things that you’re capable of doing. With The Electric Lady, we’re talking about self-actualization: being the change you want to see. It’s also more personal, more revealing. The new album deals with a new breed of women…strong, bold women who are taking their stands and not being marginalized.” – JANELLE MONÁE
