Monae for old rope?

I've been listening to the Janelle Monae album a lot over the last couple of weeks and it's providing a good soundtrack to the summer.

She's blended a lot of styles on there, equal parts future and retro soul, to make something fresh.

The influences extend to her visuals too - in the video for new single 'Cold War' she puts a real-time spin on Nothing Compares 2 U...

...while on Letterman she channels the spirit of James Brown for 'Tightrope' (which sounded good played loud at Uprock last week)
