Janelle Monae “Tightrope” feat. Big Boi [video]

Janelle Monae has released the debut single and video from her forthcoming full length The ArchAndroid scheduled for release on May 18.

The lead single “Tightrope” features Outkast’s Big Boi, and follows closely with the sound of her initial album and EP’s. The horns sound great on this one, indicating that with a Bad Boy budget behind her she may be able to expand the depth and complexity of her music, which I definitely look forward to.

Janelle maintains her signature “look”, which I think sets her apart from other forward moving experimental soul acts, however, it’ll be interesting if the image can last without becoming cliche. Hopefully the persona will grow and develop with time, as there definitely isn’t a lack of energy and creativity with miss Monae.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
