I have been a fan of Janelle Monáe’s music for ages (I’ve been waiting since 2013 for a new album!!!) and because of her I have also discovered awesome artists like Miguel (he is now one of my favourite musicians thanks to their duet PrimeTime) and Jidenna (an artist she signed to her label Wonderland Records).
Make Me Feel is a Prince infused track that basically hits all the right spots, it’s a hark back to a pop legend while being utterly modern at the same time! Make Me Feel also highlights Sexual Orientation Fluidity in a positive way!
I love the Pre-Chorus Hook:
It’s like I’m powerful with a little bit of tender
An emotional, sexual bender
Mess me up, yeah, but no one does it better
There’s nothin’ better
Oh and lets also include Django Jane, this rather epic rap track belongs on this weeks Song of the Week post because it’s another awesome track that highlights issues of Gender and Race in a funky and slick style. The flow and word play in this rap is rather unbelievable!
The New album Dirty Computer is out in April!!!
Janelle Monáe is quite a remarkably talented woman whose music is so politically and socially charged, and personally I think that she’s one of the most underrated musicians currently working in the music industry. And her nothing less than iconic speech at this years Grammy’s only emphasises why this woman is an inspiration to Women all around the world.
