The New Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae Track, "Q.U.E.E.N." Is Bonkers: Listen

Erykah Badu is saying new things into a microphone, and, as these things usually go, our week is vastly improved for it. The new song is the lead single from Janelle Monae's forthcoming sophomore record, and Prince should maybe consider folding up his parts and going home. Listen to "Q.U.E.E.N." below.

Janelle Monae is a natural collaborator for our Queen -- the former owes much of her futuristic funk to Badu, whose vocal subtleties contrast beautifully with the bombast of the track.

Badu is also working on an album of her own, FYI.
