  • Artist: Janelle Monáe
  • Track: PrimeTime
  • Feat. Miguel
  • Producer: Chuck Lightening, Nate Wonder and Roman Gianarth
  • Album: The Electric Lady

Ever since Bad Boy’s Janelle Monáe broke out on the scene with her electric stylings in 2010, music lovers across the world have been enamored with the energy she brings to the table. So, naturally, hooking up with the subtle yet soulful Miguel would create the perfect ying to Monáe yang. Keyword being "perfect." This balance is achieved on her latest single, PrimeTime. The production, courtesy of album collaborators Chuck Lightening, Nate Wonder and Roman Gianarth, sounds as if it were inspired by the early-90s R&B classics, allowing the vocalists to do what they do best; produce a simultaneously relaxing and exciting duet. If Monáe has more in store for us like this before the September 10, release of Electric Lady, you'll be able to count it as one of the year's most highly-anticipated and well-received.
