Janelle Monáe has been writing and performing for years. She was Grammy nominated in 2008 for the track 'Many Moons,' off her EP 'Metropolis: The Chase Suite.' A fusion of many musical styles including R&B, rap, hiphop, classical and musical theater, I personally find her music and video performances exciting. I hope you do too. 'Cold War' is her latest, a low-tech video, just released August 5th, and 'Tightrope' featuring Big Boi from Outkast is a sample of her more elaborate side, performance-wise. Both are from her CD The ArchAndroid.
