Janelle Monáe & Miguel Go 'Primetime'

Just when you think you're starting to get a handle on the quirky soul that you've come to expect from Janelle Monáe, she goes and flips the script on you by joining up with Miguel, the only person in the industry who can give her pompadour a run for its money, and releasing a slinky slow jam like "Primetime." While most of Janelle's overtures of love have been of the sweet and bombastic variety, the Prince-esque track, which is the next official single from her upcoming The Electric Lady, finds the twosome waxing romantic about getting some alone time together. And, though there is nothing really overtly sexual here, the groove and vibe definitely signal that this particular meet-up will be for grown folks only. In addition to dropping the single, Janelle has also announced a tour in support of The Electric Lady, the North American leg of which will fittingly kick off this October at Philly's Electric Factory. Looks like Ms. Monáe is looking to be a problem in the last few months of 2013. Be prepared to body roll when you catch the track after the bounce along with the tour dates for The Electric Lady Tour.
