Janelle Monae, Erykah Badu Open Up About New Projects


Miss Janelle Monae and fellow “Q.U.E.E.N.” Badoula Oblongata–b.k.a. Erykah Badu–opened up about upcoming projects and what to expect with their new music at the Billboard Music Awards, earlier this month. When speaking on her album Electric Lady due late summer, Monae explained that fans should “expect that it will be an experience.”

“I believe in the element of surprise, like Prince, so I can’t speak too much,” she told Billboard. “But when the timing is right, just know that it will definitely be something that we will never forget.”

Badu is also said to be working on a new project. “I’m writing right now. Sometimes it takes a little while. When it happens, it does.”

When asked when fans can expect the album to be dropping, she explained that she hasn’t placed a time constraint on it but that it should be coming in the near future.

If the albums are going to be even close to as fabulous as the ladies making them, we’re definitely in for a treat. — Shannon Powell
