Recommendation: Janelle Monáe

A reader recommends…

janelle monae

Janelle Monáe
She’s a musical artist who rocks a pompadour, a 1950s Elvis aesthetic, and an amazing voice.

Janelle Monáe is an amazing musician who has a distinctly queer sense of style. Her first album, Metropolis: The Chase Suite, is a wild trip in a science-fiction universe where the forbidden love is between androids and humans. Her lyrics are smart and engaging, and her vocal range is wild!
