New Music: Janelle Monáe f/ Miguel – ‘PrimeTime’

PrimeTime

Love is in the air on “PrimeTime,” Janelle Monáe’s steamy duet with Miguel. The two whisper sweet nothings to each other on the soulful number off Janelle’s upcoming album The Electric Lady.

“It’s a primetime for our love/ And heaven is bettin’ on us,” coos Janelle over the guitar-driven instrumental.

Due Sept. 10, The Electric Lady also features Prince, Solange, Erykah Badu, and Esperanza Spalding.

Janelle will embark on a North American headline tour on October 13 in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 23. See an itinerary below.

    She looks like a mix of Ashanti and LeToya Luckette. And this song sounds LEGENDARY. I hope it soars her up to new heights. This is what her first album lacked. Can’t wait till Electric Lady. I never liked Miguel on featured songs. He does well on his own.

    Wow, just wow. What I like so far about the build up of this album is the fact that “Q.U.E.E.N.,” “Dance Apocalyptic,” and this amazing track sound so different but are still classic Janelle. I seriously love this woman and can’t wait to get my hands on that new album. The anticipation is KILLIN’ ME!
