R&B enigma Janelle Monáe drops a new single, which features Erykah Badu on vocals throughout much of the track. It's an incredibly funky number with a huge emphasis on synth chords that remind me of some of Prince's best tracks to come out in the early 80s.

While the track starts off a bit cheesy, a rap verse comes through during the later portion of the song with a strong set of bars that empower the song's themes of femininity and strength. Give a listen, enjoy!
