Janelle Monae!

She just released Dirty Computer, perhaps her masterpiece of an album, perhaps containing Prince's last great masterpiece in Make Me Feel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGRzz0oqgUE. (Seriously, it's alright.)

She has released three super excellent albums including this year's Dirty Computer - The ArchAndroid (2010) and The Electric Lady (2013), previously. They contain some amazing funk and soul cuts and are worth a re-visit.

Somehow none of this amazing poo poo has failed to chart, not like that -really- matters.

A chick pea is neither a chick nor a pea. Discuss!

She actually scored #6 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the R&B charts for the first time with this album.

I love Dirty Computer. It's her most direct and political album, and also is much more compact genre-wise, and feels like it flows between tracks better than her previous works. I still love ArchAndroid the most, but Dirty Computer is a loving jam.

Make Me Feel and Django Jane are fire.

Janelle Monae is an under appreciated genius.

Her tour has sold out all over the place, looks like she's finally getting that recognition.

I saw her live in 2013. She absolutely kills it on stage.
