You may not realize it, but if you're a Janelle Monae fan, you're probably a Roman GianArthur fan, too. You've gotten a taste of his work on Ms. Monae's 2010 album, 'The ArchAndroid,' in which he composed and arranged the album's 'Suite Overtures' and contributed to 'Ba Bop Bye Ya.'
Get familiar with the name Roman GianArthur, you're going to be seeing it a lot soon. A member of Janelle Monae's Wondaland Arts Society collective, GianArthur is a singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist and producer. But with all of that musical talent he doesn't call himself as musician.
