Prince Makes Janelle Monáe and Erykah Badu Even Cooler, If That Was Possible


When Janelle Monáe and Eryklah Badu teamed up for their video for the song “Q.U.E.E.N.”, our own Madeleine Davies called it “possibly the most fun and stylish music video of all time.” The pair have managed to up their cool factor 5000 percent by getting Prince himself to remix the song, which is basically like getting the best fairy godmother in music to bless you for life.

It’s not like Monáe woke up this morning and got the best news of her life out of the blue though; Prince is reported to be featured on her upcoming album The Electric Lady, out in September. If that song sounds anything like this, let’s hope that Samsung swings Monáe some sort of pre-order deal for her album ala Jay-Z (or it’s leaked like Yeezus wasn’t supposed to be).
