Janelle Monae

July 15, 2008

Hailing originally from Kansas City, this current Atlantan is changing the way the South views experimental soul (if that’s even an appropriate term).  And her vibes are not only resonating through the ATL.  This punk-ish diva is on the brink of superstardom.  With support from the likes of Big Boi (she was actually featured on a couple songs on Outkast’s “Idlewild”) and Sean Puffy Combs, Monae is getting nods from all over the record biz.  

But anyone can get publicity regardless of talent, right?  For Janelle Monae, that is simply not the case.  To say this female vocalist has a voice would be the understatement of the year.  With glassy tones, effortless vibrato, and an extraordinary range, Monae’s abilities are abundant and sure to turn heads.  Oh yeah…and the music’s not bad either.  Monae is currently working on “Metropolis,” a musical montage that will be released in four different parts.  She is about to release “The Chase” installment of the montage on August 12, 2008.  You can listen to a couple of her tracks at http://www.myspace.com/janellemonae, and you can order/pre-order her cd via the site.
