Bop.

Not very familiar with Prince catalogue but it reminds me of him.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

Her dancing is so awkward, I feel like she is trying to do the Bruno Mars throwback feel with her album.

This isn't a new sound for her though. I was just playing QUEEN earlier and even that had a similar vibe to this.

This track is Janelle through and through. The sound she had before, only slightly tuned which is just natural for an artist that they change and experiment a bit.

As for her dancing - she has always been a damn good dancer and there's absolutely nothing wrong with her dancing here at all. Anyone saying otherwise is blind IMHO.

I was watching Capital fm (the music channel) earlier and Make me feel came on and i was like :D :D :D

I'm still awaiting this song shooting up to the top of iTunes and Spotify. A song of this quality shouldn't be a minor hit.

Enjoying this a lot atm :D it’s like a Selena Gomez song (makes sense since Julia and Justin are responsible for her sound) mixed with serious Prince vibes

I kinda prefer Django Jane though

I love her but this album aged badly for me. I barely touch it and it's not even a year old

A month or so ago I had it on constant replay. Still great for me.

Mmmm... I feel like Janelle Monáe is the type of musician whose art only reaches its full potential and can be fully understood if you listen to the entire album. Maybe that's why we shouldn't expect her singles to reach No. 1 in the first place.

This is the best r&b-album of the year. I love all the tracks on it. But Janelle never dissapoints.
