Sounds like some shitty beyonce. Fuck you Janelle.

It's gonna be on a Wondaland compilation album - it's going to be different from a Janelle Monae LP, and a few of those artists could use white people yoga dollars probably.

Yeah I'm pretty upset about this. Archandroid was fantastic, Electric Lady was pretty good but not as interesting, and this song is poop. I hope this isn't indicative of her direction

that same will happen to grimes, since she joined roc nation

its from the compilation EP for her new label
it's not really "new janelle" in that sense

furrealtho, this is at least a tiny bit better than Katy Perry.

Not even technically a solo effort

Wow, a mainstream pop artist made shitty music for the lowest common denominator. I sure am surprised.

I'm sad now.

Holy shit, the damage control in the comments:

> it's called "progression". she does a new sound for every album. nothing wrong with that at all. you don't know if she's gonna be rocking a tuxedo on her next tour or not, so don't be negative.

>Its called songwriting folks. She's being CREATIVE... I guess people don't know what that means anymore... smh

>A lot of people want to put her in a box, which means they're not real fans because they'd know how she strives to defy labels.

It's a fucking twerk song. Just admit that she wrote what's commonly known as one of the most unoriginal kinds of tracks you can possibly produce in this medium.

my poor Janelle she had a cute dyke look for a nignog

but yeah this is ok, she wants that money, it's fine

They're staying true to the original meaning of "fan" as in "fanatic" defending everything no matter what.
>>
>>54821638

>She has not sold out
>It's the same message wrapped in a bit more fun (and marketable) package

Make that "entirely based around being marketable"...
Oh, and that's the very definition of "selling out".
>>
There are 2 guys who write all her music, she's only the face and the singer. The true source of talent hasn't been publicly shamed by this.

Well then, I guess we'll just tell her that when she makes shit music, she'd doing a great job! That'll really make her want to improve.

>>54821638

This is stupid, Janelle has SPECIFICALLY been an asexual, revolutionary person in her music.

For fuck's sake, when people ask about her relationship status in interview she refuses to comment.

It doesn't matter what her new direction is. In any case she will NEVER top ArchAndroid.

Twigs has been bland shit since the beginning.

This one actually made me physically cringe. How fucking deluded do you have to be to see THIS as a more creative diversion?

Tbh I'm surprised more folks didn't see this coming after Electric Ladyland, collaborations with that group who sand TONIIIIII_I_I_I_IGHT WE ARE YUUUUNG etc
