Janelle Monae - ArchAndroid is released on May 18, 2010.

I’ve been a fan of Janelle Monae for several years now and I’ve seen her perform live 3 times.  I think her performances are great as she has an amazing voice, she dances (often moonwalks) and sometimes paints a picture (literally) as she is performing.  Her first full length album, The ArchAndroid, will be released on May 18, 2010 and I’ve been lucky enough to have the record a full week prior to its release!  The album picks up where “The Chase Suite,” her first EP leaves off.

Janelle Monae

On April 8, 2010 R&B singer Janelle Monae performed a sold-out show at New York’s Highline Ballroom.  This is my third time seeing her  and she’s just as great this time around. Janelle Monae gave us a preview of her upcoming album “The ArchAndroid” which is due for release on May 18, 2010.  If the album is anything like her show, the album is going to be a great mix of funk and soul.  She can sing and dance and put on a great show that left the audience begging for more. Her debut album was a favorite among critics but it didn’t fare too well on the charts.  I think that’s about to change any second now.
