Prince Praises Janelle Monae’s Artistry

Prince has spoken. The legendary singer says that 2013’s best artist is none other than Janelle Monae for her ‘Q.U.E.E.N’ music video and ‘The Electric Lady’ album.

During a recent concert at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, the royal singer told the crowd that Janelle’s ‘Q.U.E.E.N’ video was the year’s strongest visual and ‘The Electric Lady” was the best album released this year, per an official press release.

The two entertainers also performed their duet ‘Givin Em What They Love’ onstage for the first time. The love fest was indeed mutual. “#givinemwhattheylove for the first time . #prince #janellemonae,” Janelle shared on Instagram with a photo from the show.

Earlier this year, Prince surprised Janelle with a singing telegram to the tune of his ‘Kiss.’ Janelle spoke about connecting with Prince in an interview and said the two were friends. “It was very organic. Prince … reached out to me when I released ‘Metropolis’ … and I was doing that almost independently,” she said. “He and I have been friends ever since, and he’s always respected me as a businesswoman.”
