Janelle Monae Confirms New Album Title

Published: Saturday 11th Aug 2012 by Sam

After racking up praise aplenty with her debut album ‘The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III)’, stage blazer Janelle Monae is gearing up to release its hotly anticipated follow-up.

Earmarked for a late 2012 arrival, the LP now has a title. Find out what it’s been christened after the jump…

Speaking in the September 2012 issue of Vanity Fair, the 26 year old revealed that her sophomore set is titled…


The Electric Lady


The ArchAndroid was breakfast, lunch, and dinner, hence we’re uber amped for ‘The Electric Lady’ – a title which is oh so fitting.

Check out Ms. Monae performing the cut in Toronto below…

    I liked a couple of her songs but i never really got the hype around her music , i listed to all her albums and i couldn’t get into her music i guess shes an acquired taste like prince or the weeknd

      did you just put PRINCE in the same sentence as ‘the weeknd’? or worse of all, did you just say he is an acquired taste? do you even understand how much music is completely derivative of what he did? if you don’t like prince you might as well just stop all critiques, boo boo… go sit in a corner until you’ve learned your lesson. thank you.

    The album could be epic if she makes something more commercial. Great like her previous one but a little bit more commercial so people can get into her. Cold War was amazing

  8. My Truth-Your Truth August 11, 2012

    Can’t wait. Is she still signed to bad boy?

    That title is MORE THAN FITTING for Janelle Monae. I can’t wait…”The Archandroid” was and still is AMAZING.

      I totally agree. “The ArchAndroid” was unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. It sounds like a soundtrack to a movie. I love every cut on that album and wish it had done better than it did. Real instruments were used (which is something you rarely see in African-American music nowadays) and the lyrics were bananas! I’m so looking forward to her new album.

    I LOVE IT! I was at this show and this song was jammmminnngg.

  11. JB August 11, 2012

    Finally! I’ve been waiting to hear this info!

    That first album was amazingly good! Cant wait for some new music, she is one of the most energetic and dynamic performers out.

    I was just singing one of her songs yesterday and thinking to myself …When is she going to drop another album??? Well now I know and I ‘m glad.

    I have both of her previous albums which were amazing. She is so talented and different from the usual stuff that is out there.

    Jonelle and Kelis are my favorite artists. Both are underrated yet more talented than all of the commercial acts out there.

    ‘metropolis’ was her debut album (which actually came after her unreleased ‘audition’ album) you b****** never get anything correct
