Janelle Monáe has finally released her long awaited third album “Dirty Computer” which is a beautiful masterpiece of an album that also showcases her influences that draw from the likes of Prince, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, and James Brown.
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.
The extremely talented and beautiful songstress Janelle Monáe is gearing up for the release of her third studio album “Dirty Computer” which arrived this Friday. The album is shaping up to be her most creative album to date as each musical offering this far has been pushing the boundaries of music and holds so much weight to it as the bold messages displayed on “Django Jane,” “Make Me Feel,” and “PYNK” are simply stunning and heartfelt.
I`m beyond happy that people are finally embracing her art.
Janelle Monáe is all about female empowerment as she released the visual to her female anthem “PYNK,” the third track from her upcoming third album and “emotion picture,” Dirty Computer. In the new video directed by Emma Westenberg, Janelle celebrates women’s most intimate body part.
PYNK is a brash celebration of creation. self love. sexuality. and pussy power!” explains Janelle. “PYNK is the color that unites us all, for pink is the color found in the deepest and darkest nooks and crannies of humans everywhere… PYNK is where the future is born….” Check out the new video below.
‘Make Me Feel’ was directed by Alan Ferguson and is inspired by Prince, while ‘Djano Jane’ shows a different side to Janelle. The Andrew Donoho video features striking visuals, including one moment when Monáe’s face appears on a woman’s lap as she raps, “Let the vagina have a monologue.”
Janelle spoke on her upcoming album saying, “I actually had this title on this concept before my first album The ArchAndroid, and it scared me because a lot of the things that I knew that I needed to say were very deep, very personal, from the heart, you know, this is an extremely vulnerable album and it took me a while to make it because I’m a self editor.”
This past weekend me and one of my best friends Wyatt got the chance to watch the film “Hidden Figures” which is a story about Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – three African-American women whose contributions to the US space programme are celebrated now, not overlooked anymore.
Janelle Monáe and her Wondaland crew including Deep Cotton, St. Beauty, Jidenna, Roman GianArthur, George 2.0 are doing their part to prove that black lives matter with their new powerful song titled “Hell You Talmbout.”
