Janelle Monae is charging ahead full steam to the April 27th release of her third studio album ‘Dirty Computer.’
Preceded by singles ‘Make Me Feel’ and ‘Django Jane,’ the set is billed as the star’s most personal effort yet.
But many are still wondering: what does ‘Dirty Computer’ mean?
In a new interview with Annie Mac on BBC 1 Radio 1, Monae lifts the lid on the semantics of the title.
Head below for the explanation..
She explains that ‘Dirty Computer’ is for those who have been pushed to the perimeter of the society; those made to feel like they have “bugs and viruses.”
Hit play on this clip as the multi-hyphenate talent further expands on the clever concept, ‘Black Panther,’ Prince, and much more…
We’ve long admired Janelle’s fearless approach to her artistry and all signs point to her upping the levels and pushing the envelope even more this go round.
Like many, we can’t wait to power up ‘Dirty Computer.’
Roll on April.
