Janelle Monae Announces New Album ‘Electric Lady’

Janelle Monae has just announced the follow-up to her excellent debut album ‘The ArchAndroid’, one of my favorite releases of 2010,  is on the way!  While there is no release date for ‘Electric Lady’ yet, we will get our first taste very soon!

Much to our excitement, the first single ‘Q.U.E.E.N’ features none other than the fabulous Erykah Badu and will be dropping on JanelleMonae.com on April 22nd. I’m way beyond excited for this collaboration, I can only imagine the brilliance of these two amazing artists combined!

Bonobo : Heaven For The Sinner (Feat. Erykah Badu)

I’ve been on a major Erykah Badu kick these past few days, and I’m always ready for new music from her so I was excited to see her name attached to the just released ‘Heaven For The Sinner‘ from NYC-based producer Bonobo. The beat is a little hard to get your head around at the beginning, but it quickly turns into a dreamy little tune.

The single can be found on Bonobo’s new album ‘The North Borders’

Erykah Badu Covers Chaka Khan at the BET Honors

Last night at the BET Honors Erykah Badu paid tribute to the one and only Chaka Khan with a stunning cover of the classic ‘What Cha’ Gonna Do For Me.‘ I loved Erykah’s take on ‘Stay‘ which is found on the flawless ‘Live‘ album and this performance is just as great.

It’s obvious they have a mutual love and respect for one another, and when you put them together you get magic!

The Flaming Lips: Now I Understand ft. Siri & Erykah Badu

When we heard that psychedelic rock band The Flaming Lips & Erykah Badu were teaming up we must have missed the memo that Siri would also be featured. Yes, that Siri – Apple’s iPhone virtual Girl Friday, she appears alongside Erykah and a reversed Biz Markie sample on Now I Understand.

I’m not too familiar with The Flaming Lips but I’m enjoying this introduction to them and finding myself drifting away with Erykah’s soothing vocals.
