    ^Pipe is definitely an R&B track rather you think its "faux" ratchet or not.

    I wanted to love Janelle's album but unfortunately I liked a few individual cuts and really enjoyed the concept, but the overall sound is not my thing.

    Mariah's... Well didn't play it. Heard one thing or two but not my thing either.

    I loved her album. Not just because I love her but her music and vocals were classic on them.
    (Won’t lie though, Deadwood was the worst song on the album).

    * Voted by: JSparksFan, leoavalon, WEBofDESIRVE, lambforever, Erotica, DOSSOME, Loose, mattsky, Unbreakable34, croatiaxtina, bluecherry, beredy, stevyy, delapuerta, cheapthrills, ThaInfo1, firefly_86, Jonathan, BeeBoy, leomedar, Ska8er, UKMusicLova, Loveguru, Swingin, cristy, Tansike, spiritboy, heppolo, nuttah, minime
    * Genre(s): R&B, Funk, Pop, Neo Soul, Hip-Hop
    * Highlights: "Make Me Feel”, "PYNK”, ”I Like That”, "Django Jane”, "Crazy, Classic, Life”







    Dirty Computer is the third studio album by American singer Janelle Monáe, released on April 27, 2018 by Wondaland Arts Society, Bad Boy Records and Atlantic Records. It is the follow-up to her studio albums The ArchAndroid (2010) and The Electric Lady (2013) and her first album not to be a part of Cindi Mayweather's Metropolis narrative. The concept album was preceded by three singles, "Make Me Feel", "Django Jane", and "Pynk", and one promotional single, "I Like That", and its release was accompanied by a 46-minute narrative film project of the same name.

    In October 2016, Monáe made her feature-length film acting debut in Moonlight, alongside Naomie Harris, André Holland, and Mahershala Ali. Monáe also starred in the film Hidden Figures, alongside actresses Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer; the film was released in December 2016. While filming her two movie roles, Monáe remained active in music with features on Grimes' "Venus Fly" from her Art Angels album and also the soundtrack for the Netflix series The Get Down with a song titled, "Hum Along and Dance (Gotta Get Down)". She was also on the tracks "Isn't This the World" and "Jalapeño" for the Hidden Figures soundtrack. In an interview with People, Monáe revealed that she was already working on her third studio album when she received the scripts for her two first acting roles; therefore, she put the album on hold. She also revealed in the interview that she would be releasing new music sometime in 2017, although by the end of the year no album or single was announced.




    It was confirmed by Monáe after "Make Me Feel" was released that Prince, with whom she collaborated on her preceding album, had worked on the single, as well as the entire album, before his death in 2016. This was confirmed after listeners noticed similarities between the single's sound and the late musician's work. Monae stated in an interview with BBC Radio 1: "Prince was actually working on the album with me before he passed on to another frequency, and helped me come up with some sounds. And I really miss him, you know, it’s hard for me to talk about him. But I do miss him, and his spirit will never leave me." The synth groove in "Make Me Feel", reported to be written by Prince, was played at one of his parties years prior to its inclusion in the single, as confirmed by Prince's DJ, Lenka Paris.

    Monáe had been exploring the themes presented in Dirty Computer for a decade before its production, but noted that "earlier it felt safer to package herself in metaphors...The sanitized android version felt more accepted — and more acceptable — than her true self. The public, she explained, doesn't really 'know Janelle Monáe, and I felt like I didn't really have to be her because they were fine with Cindi.'" Monáe considers Dirty Computer to be "a homage to women and the spectrum of sexual identities." The album's 14 tracks can be grouped into three loose categories: Reckoning, Celebration and Reclamation. The first deals with Monáe's recognition of how she is viewed by society, the middle explores her acceptance of "the cards she has been dealt", and the closing tracks deal with her reclamation and redefinition of American identity. Overall, the album is Monáe's attempt to "step into a more authentic self".

    The album received widespread critical acclaim upon release, peaking at number six on the US Billboard Hot 200 chart and received two nominations at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.
