Janelle Monáe has released her third studio album, Dirty Computer today. It features appearances by Brian Wilson, Pharrell Williams, Zoë Kravitz, and Grimes, plus musical contributions from Prince just prior to his death.
Aside from the sci-fi visuals the lyrics are raw and honest, touching on physical and emotional insecurity, punctuated with sexual liberation. It’s a well produced album — can’t say that I dislike any of the tracks! The songs, “So Afraid”, “I got the juice” and “I like that”, really stood out as my favorites.
