Janelle Monáe Releases New Single “Primetime (feat. Miguel)”
With the release of her much-anticipated sophomore album The Electric Lady bound for shelves (physical and digital) on Sept.10 courtesy of Wondaland Arts Society/Bad Boy Records/Atlantic Records, Janelle Monáe has unearthed the album’s third single, “Primetime.”
After the propelling, eccentric energy that characterized her first two singles, “Q.U.E.E.N.” and "Dance Apocalyptic,” “Primetime,” which also features “Adorn” crooner Miguel in a guest spot, finds Monáe taking things at a slower pace. A romantic slow jam, the track begins with Monáe expressing her undying affection for her man, proclaiming, “baby our love will always keep it real and true.” Miguel takes over on the second verse, delivering equally romantic (and suggestive) sentiments, before a soulful guitar coda brings the song to a close.
