Janelle Monae’s “ArchAndroid”.

Ever since the beginning of the year, I’ve had a plan to listen to one (new) album a day. Today, I woke up and listened to Janelle Monae’s album, “ArchAndroid”. 

Now THAT is an album to wake up to. 

Janelle Monae brings something unique and memorable to today’s female music industry. And, no, I’m not talking about a uniqueness or a memorableness of a Ke$ha or a Nick Minaj. I’m talking about something long-term. Classic. Unforgettable. Her album is an album that I will probably play over and over and over again. 

Janelle was “…handpicked by Big Boi to guest on his Got Purp mixtape and on Outkast’s Idlewild. ..her debut EP…is the story of an alien android name Cindy Mayweather who’s been persecuted by the government of futuristic city Metropolis for her illegal love affair with a human (from Rhapsody’s info page on Janelle Monae)”

Seriously! Listen to it. 

By the way, shout out to my friend Sal, who gave props to her before I even knew who she was. Wouldn’t be writing this journal entry without that intial inspiration Janelle gave to him!
