Janelle Monae’s New Album Set to Feature Collaborations with Prince, Miguel
After her bang-up song with Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae is set to add two more A-list collaborators to her upcoming album: Prince and Miguel.
The “Purple Rain” singer has recorded a track with Monae, although the details of the collaboration have remained otherwise under wraps.
“We are great friends, and he is a mentor to us, to me,” Monae reportedly told Billboard.
Monae’s work with Miguel will sample the Pixies smash “Where Is My Mind?” mashed up with a funk beat. Titled “Primetime,” Monae says the track is a love song.
“The Electric Lady,” Monae’s second studio album, is slated for release this September. The first single, “Q.U.E.E.N.,” featured Erykah Badu.
