Janelle Monáe Returns with 'Make Me Feel' & 'Django Jane'

  /  02.22.2018

Janelle Monáe is ready to share her “Emotion Picture” with the world.

Five years since her last album The Electric Lady, the multi-faceted singer returns with “Make Me Feel” and “Django Jane,” the first two singles off her upcoming third solo album, Dirty Computer.

The funky “Make Me Feel” takes inspiration from Monáe’s late idol Prince with its vintage vibes. The colorful, fashion-forward video, directed by Alan Ferguson (Beyoncé, Solange), captures the ’80s music and dance revolution.

On the anthemic “Django Jane,” Monáe celebrates black women and black culture with an unapologetic flow, while delivering a message about identity. The video was directed by Andrew Donoho and Chuck Lightning, with additional vagina monologue footage by Lacey Duke.

In an interview with Beats 1, Monáe opened up about the “extremely vulnerable” album, which is based on a concept she’s had prior to her debut The ArchAndriod. “I’m actually terrified. It’s such an honest body of work and I don’t know how people are going to react to it,” she told Zane Lowe. “I know that there are a lot of things that I haven’t discussed and I think this is the album that you’ll get an opportunity to get a closer glimpse into my mind and into my heart.”

Janelle has been in the studio with Julia Michaels and Chuck Lightning working on her “Emotion Picture” Dirty Computer, which will also include a narrative film. The album is now available for pre-order and arrives everywhere April 27.
