What do you get when you mix two of the most talented and creative names in R&B? Surprisingly, a slow and sultry jam.
Janelle Monáe and Miguel, the queen and king of gravity-defying pompadours, team up for the third single off of Monáe’s upcoming album, The Electric Lady, called “Primetime.” On it, both artists sing about waiting for that perfect time to be together, drop everything (including the mysterious facades) and just be. Miguel definitely sounds good crooning next to Monáe as she sings soulfully. The guitar solo adds extra funk to this slow jam as you find yourself bobbing your head slow to it, wondering why it isn’t longer once it begins to fade out too soon. “Primetime” is extremely different from Monáe’s previous singles for The Electric Lady, including “Dance Apocalyptic” and “Q.U.E.E.N.” with Erykah Badu, and it’s still miles ahead of what others are putting out right now. Let’s keep it real.
