Can you name me some other songs that she might perform FOR SURE during the tour? So I can have a listen, just started knowing her since Yoga came out.

And yes, this is also my favorite album this year so far followed by Lily Allen & Dita Van Teese.
I would hope she does Dance Apocalyptic - one of my favorites - it's so fun.

Don't Judge Me is such a beautiful record, I can't get over it. It's impressive to hear Janelle give us such candid vulnerability. The Stevie influence in the instrumentation gorgeous.

If this won't be nominated for AOTY, 2019 Grammy's will be cancelled.

I could never get into this musically. Overall I can't get into Janelle, but I like her vision.

I really like Janelle. She's a great performer and a good live singer. However, I haven't fully enjoyed any of her albums. I wish she would take a more commercial route. I want more songs like Yoga, Tight Rope and Cold War. I also wish she would showcase more her voice.

This album was honestly everything and more to me, I do understand you have to really connect with the message to vibe completely, but AOTY contender easily for me!

It was a brave move from her to get 'younger' - both in sound as aesthetics.

Despite taking the brave route, I much prefer The Archandroid and Electric Lady.

I love the lyrics. They’re simple but clever. Even though you say that you love me, I’m afraid you just love my disguise

I appreciate what a compelling, honest presentation this was. Janelle really gave of herself and her experiences and yet,m somehow wrapped it up as delicious ear candy :) This is my favorite album of the year.

I'm not a big fan of the album but hope she gets recognition for her vision.

It’s so bizarre she’s nominated for AOTY, but missed out on all the R&B categories :lol:

I thought the same!
I thought either I Like That, Make Me Feel, Pynk or Don’t Judge Me would get a nomination on their own.

But I am sooo happy for her and I hope she wins this!
