Janelle Monáe Leads Us To Prime Time


janelle and miguel

With the suites IV & V of her musical cybersaga having just seen the light of day Janelle Monáe is riding high again. ‘Electric Lady’ has proven to be another winner with legends such as Prince, Erykah Badu & Big Boi on board. ‘Prime Time’, the Princey-esque ballad she performs with Miguel is the week’s top track at the loop.

The mighty return of Arcade Fire with James Murphy on production duties is predictably the highest entry, followed by new songs by the likes of Helen; Machinedrum or Donna Summer remixed by Chromeo for a forthcoming mixes compilation. The biggest surprise among the debuts, though, goes comes from our favourite mormon trio Low who’s just released a superb cover of Rihanna’s recent smash ‘Stay’.
