Watch out Prince, cuz we got a funky Q.U.E.E.N. track up in here. Janelle Monáe asks the question "Am I a freak for dancing well?" and Erykah Badu drops a killer rap verse toward the end of the song. Neo-soul sensational meets some New Jack Swing in this song that is just begging for an awesome music video. This is the first single from Janelle Monáe's album, The Electric Lady, which is due for a release at some point in 2013. Her last album was 2010's The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III).

Bernie Grundman mastering reference? That is some high level shit. Check out these tweets from Janelle:
