After 5 years since her last album, Electric Lady Janelle Monáe returns with her new LP Dirty Computer. Lead by the singles “Make Me Feel” and “Django Jane” and “PYNK,” The 14 track album explores her sexuality. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the singer/actor/activist came out as a pansexual.
“I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you,” she says in a tone befitting the “commander” patch on her arm. “This album is for you. Be proud.”
In support of the album, Janelle released a motion picture for Diry Computer which aired on both MTV and BET. Stream the album below.
