Ever-tuxedoed R&B songstress Janelle Monáe is hard at work on her second album, and it's going to have some impressive guests on it. Monáe was especially excited to be working with Prince, telling Billboard:
"We are great friends, and he is a mentor to us, to me...It's a beautiful thing to have a friend -- someone who cares about your career, and wants to see you go far and to push boundaries and shake up the world -- give whatever they possibly can to the cause."
She also spoke about knowing that Prince doesn't work with just anyone:
"I had a chance to produce an icon...It's not every day that he collaborates. I'm honored and humbled that he trusted me. He is forever my friend, and I am forever indebted. I can't say too much else about it."
She hasn't released the name of her song with Prince, but she has said that R&B singer Miguel will be featured on the song, "Primetime."
The Electric Lady will be released in September, but you can see the video for the first single, "Q.U.E.E.N.," featuring Erykah Badu right now.
