Janelle Monae: "Tightrope" f. Big Boi

Janelle Monae's long in the works debut album, ArchAndroid, is nearing completion for a May 18 release date, and her record label has released "Tightrope" as the set's first single. The song is a hornd-led vampy soul stomper, like basically everything in Monae's back catalog. But this one features an awesome verse from OutKast's Big Boi, who has been on a ridiculous winning street as of late. Boi's verse gives this a real Stankonia vibe, which is definitely welcome. Go here to hear it.

Janelle Monae is in a category of her own! She never ceases to amaze me and I am glad she is back on the music scene in a major way! Her vocals are insane and her music is simply incredible! I hope she gets the recognition she truly deserves! JM, you rock!

Absolutely love Janelle Monae. She's changing the game in 2010. I've seen her 4x already and can't get enough. she's always evolving and bring so much to the stage. I'm going down in history as saying this will be album of the year.
