Janelle Monáe//Sincerely, Jane

Monday does make me feel like I am walking dead, but fortunately, this song is the perfect wake-up call—gritty and realistically grim as the lyrics are.

The friend who turned me on to Janelle Monáe described her as “the future of R&B” and I can certainly get down with that assessment, as well as this track (sorry for the corniness; it’s Monday). Monáe is more than really good; she’s also really weird. Good+Weird=Best Possible Combination, in my eyes.

Sincerely, Jane

Daydreamers, please wake up, we can't sleep no more.
