The much-anticipated album from Janelle Monáe is out.
Dirty Computer is a 14-track album accompanied by an “emotion picture.” It’s a 44-minute film that debuted on MTV and BET on Thursday.
The album was inspired by Prince. Monáe said,
“Prince was actually working on the album with me before he passed on to another frequency, and helped me come up with some sounds. I really miss him, you know, it’s hard for me to talk about him. But I do miss him, and his spirit will never leave me.”
The album also explores Monáe’s sexuality. She’s hoping the album will empower others no matter what their sexual journey might be.
Have you checked out the album yet? Is she bringing her tour near your town?
