Janelle Monae fans are in for a treat!
Today, the soul singer reveals the third single lifted from her sophomore album The Electric Lady, titled
“Primetime.” The ballad features R&B crooner Miguel and shows a more sensual side of the funky songstress.
Unlike previous singles “Q.U.E.E.N.” and “Dance Apocalyptic,” “Primetime” gives fans a glimpse of Monae’s vocal range and versatility.
“When you’re down and it’s hard/ And you feel like you’re giving your all/ Baby, our love will always keep it real and true,” she sings. “Tonight, I don’t want to be mysterious.”
If her three singles are an accurate depiction of her new album them we know it will be great! The Electric Lady, which also includes collaborations with Prince, Erykah Badu, Solange and Esperanza Spaulding, hits stores on September 10.
