    Also I have Esperanza Spalding and I got a chance to work with Miguel. We just released a song yesterday called “Primetime.” And Solange Knowles, a great friend, is on the album. And I got a chance to work with one of my musical heroes – Prince.”

    Monae says she is very proud of “Electric Lady” and that she hopes it will serve to show her fans and others a different slice of R&B. One of the most unique and respected artists in contemporary music, Monae says she wants to be known for creating music across boundaries.

    “This music is jamming and it’s deeply rooted in R&B music but I didn’t want to do the marginalization – the limiting – of R&B music. I wanted to make sure that I was tackling the diversity of R&B music and exposing people to Bo Diddley and Jimi Hendrix and live instrumentation and making sure that we can all be proud of something innovative in R&B music.”
