Janelle Monae - Locked Inside

Posted about 6 years ago
Producer:
Janelle Monae and Dr. Nathaniel Irvin III
Album:
The ArchAndroid

Is it possible to give someone too big of a compliment, even if they deserve it? For example, is it wrong to say that Janelle Monae’s newest feature Locked Inside, is reminiscent of some classic Jackson 5 songs? Maybe, maybe not. But who cares when you can break your hips dancing to it? With that, we have another head-noddin’, hip-breakin’, finger-snappin’ jam from Monae which has (I’m not afraid to say) a little J5 vibe going on thanks to some classy vocals from the singer herself and some upbeat, funky production from co-producer Dr. Nathaniel Irvin III. Depending on how strong your imagination is, Locked Inside may have you thinking about how awesome the ‘70s must have been, and for Monae, a child of the ‘80s, this song is quite an accomplishment. Everyone jumped on the Bobby Ray train when it pulled into the station, and it would be just as criminal to not do the same for Janelle. Pick up her album The ArchAndroid, available now, and keep it locked for a review of the album coming early next week.
