Janelle Monae And Miguel In “PrimeTime” Music Video

Primetime is a love story based on the early adventures of Cindi Mayweather (Janelle Monáe) and her first love Joey Vice (Miguel.)  The Emotion Picture gives a glimpse at Cindi’s humble beginnings as a “cyber-server” at the Electric Sheep nightclub, a syn bar serving high-class “show droids” to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City. Incidentally, the innovative cybersoul music played at the club directly impacted Cindi, and she began singing and performing her own innovative compositions a short time after quitting this assignment. In addition, Cindi became determined to change the public perception of what an electric lady could be, dream and aspire to after working in the dismal conditions at the club.

Bad Boy/Wondaland/Atlantic recording artist Janelle Monáe made a spectacular chart debut with her acclaimed new album, “THE ELECTRIC LADY.” The collection arrived at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 – Monáe’s highest chart entry to date – as well as #3 on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” ranking.  “The Electric Tour” kicks off this Sunday, October 13th at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory and then continue through late November (see attached itinerary). Monáe recently received 5 nominations for the Soul Train Awards. Nominations include Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Video of the Year, Best Dance Performance, Best Collaboration, and The Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award.

In addition to its popular success, “THE ELECTRIC LADY” has received extraordinary critical acclaim from all corners of the globe. “A show-stopping display of force and talent,” declared Pitchfork in its “Best New Music”–rated rave, while The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis hailed the collection as “audacious, intrepid and brilliantly executed.” “The record sparkles with personality and élan,” said Britain’s The Observer, “a supercharged collection of funk, soul, and jazz.” “(Monáe) maintains her chill over skillet-hot tracks like the disco-rocking ‘We Were Rock n’ Roll’ and the jumping ‘Dance Apocalyptic,’” notedEntertainment Weekly. “Fantastic,” applauded NME, “another entertaining showcase for Monáe’s many gifts.” “(‘THE ELECTRIC LADY’) weaves hiphop soul, Seventies funk, gospel, jazz and rock while dropping references to sci-fi author Philip K. Dick and ghetto-revolutionary politics,” wrote Rolling Stone, “but Monáe holds it together through sheer force of freakadelic will and a radical feminist’s sense of self-exploration.” Perhaps SPIN said it best: “Our ears and eyes remain affixed to this brilliantly realized persona.”
