Electric Lady Janelle Monae playing Manchester in May
Date Posted: 28/04/14
Janelle Monae, one of the hottest singer songwriters in the business right now, is preparing for a string of shows in the UK next month, hot on the release of her new single Queen, featuring none other than Erykah Baduh.
The multi-talented performer will be stopping off at the Manchester Academy on May 7th as one of three UK shows, so this is a rare opportunity to see one of America's top artists while she's also at the top of her game.
At the end of last year, she released her second full-album The Electric Lady, which followed the critical and commercial hit that was The ArchAndroid.
While the sophomore effort continues the sci-fi meta-story that you just wouldn't expect to find in songs inspired by RnB, soul, jazz and fun, it was just as well received as her earlier opus - garnering universal praise from reviewers and reaching number five on the Billboard Top 200 in its opening week.
If you're heading to the show, don't fret about missing the last train. Instead, find a last minute offer for cheap accommodation in the surrounding area and make sure you can enjoy the show in its entirety.
