Janelle Monae Fights An Invisible Person At NYC Concert

Vibe / April 14, 2010

Last Thursday, VIBE.com was invited to check out Bad Boy/Atlantic Record’s Janelle Monae at The Highline Ballroom in downtown Manhattan. Industry veterans such as Lyor Cohen, Sam Crespo, and DJ Enuff were all in attendance to check out the 22-year old singer. Backed by her Wondaland Arts Society band, Ms. Monae debuted new material from her forthcoming album The ArchAndroid, then turned her cult-like following into a frenzy with a highly combative rendition of her latest single “Tightrope.” Watch out for her hook. —Mikey Fresh
