Ladies stand up. Janelle Monáe jams with Erykah Badu on the funky female anthem “Q.U.E.E.N.,” the first release from her upcoming album The Electric Lady.

The song comes with instructions from Janelle. “Q.U.E.E.N. was inspired by private discussions between Erykah and me. It is meant to make you JAM. DANCE. FUNK OUT. and dialogue later…” she tweeted.

The Electric Lady marks the follow-up to Janelle’s 2010 critically-acclaimed album The ArchAndroid.

Bow down to the “Q.U.E.E.N.”

  22. Jessica

    This isn’t your run-of-the-mill track. It’s not your typical, boring, unoriginal song like you hear on the radio. This song is EVERYTHING! Hip hop meets funk meets jazz meets punk. 3 years was WELL worth the wait.
    Dope music with intelligent, positive lyrics. And Janelle can SPIT! LOVE THIS!


  23. RaiFilmDroid

    This music is what LIFE is about.


  24. Nelson Scola

    Hell YEAH!!!!


  25. Freeda

    This shit is funky! Only Janelle can do 90s riffs, talk about booty & rap all on the same record & not sound like an idiot!


  26. Ratchet

    This is very ‘New Amerykah: Party One’. I love it!

  31. imaginAvi

    Even if it makes others uncomfortable… I’m freakin loving this. They know what they’re talking about! The booty don’t lie.


  32. Ari

    This was so worth the 3 year wait. Can’t rush genius.


  33. Nastassia

    Perfect musical match! Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu bringing the funk, knowledge (that rap JANE!) and flyness on this track. Awesome!


  34. eww

    MUSIC!!!! I love this!!! THIS is what we should be putting out to our people!!! Don’t get me wrong now, I love a good ratchet anthem as much as anybody else. But we HAVE to put the press on radio and video for records like this with a message to be played just as much!


  41. gi ou di

    El beat es parecido a las melodías de los juegos de Sonic The Hedgehog para Sega Genesis.

    I love this song!! But Janelle lost her unique sound, this sounds exactly like an Amerie record! But since Amerie isn’t being around with new music you don’t hear me complain!
