    Sounds like MJ when he was with the Jackson 5



    Just an observation, as I think even this being 4 years ago, she will continue to collaborate styles and dimensions to her eclectic vibration.

    When Prince wants to work with you, that speaks for itself.

    Using the same creative writing undertones that both Mike and Prince used in order to mask the conversations they were having with certain listener, she could be the next real thing.

    Always considered that if any artist were to even get to a level of comparison to MJ (doubtful), they would have to match his ability to incorporate the world around them into their creative juices.

    Ms. Monae's footwork alone, gives me reason to think she is appreciative of the creative side of entertaining, without having to show TnA.

    Stay tuned

    Just a small sampling of stamina and stage presence, from beginning to end





    Think she may be single-handedly reviving the original M.C. (Move the Crowd), as well as a few other monikers that she decides to add to her repertuar

    Well they had it passed on from J.B. (Soul Brother #1)



    Let's not forget Bill Bailey:


    and the Sandman:


    The torch just passes on, and adapts to the new torch-bearer, as they begin to mold and shape it for the next to grab it.

    She's been in my playlists for awhile. The sound and vibe is refreshing compared to alot of music produced by our ladies.

    Some hip hop heads as well

    Not sure what to call them, but Ms. Monae presented them to us when she hit the scene on the tightrope.
