Janelle Monae's 'The Electric Lady' to Feature Prince and Miguel


The cover girl of this week's Billboard magazine will collaborate with the 'Diamonds and Pearls' singer and the 'Girls Like You' performer in her new album which is due out in September.

Erykah Badu is not the only musician who is included in Janelle Monae's upcoming album, "The Electric Lady". The cover of this week's Billboard told the magazine that the follow-up to her 2010 "The ArchAndroid" would also feature guest appearance from Prince and Miguel.

"We are great friends, and he is a mentor to us, to me," Monae said of Prince. "It's a beautiful thing to have a friend -someone who cares about your career, and wants to see you go far and to push boundaries and shake up the world- give whatever they possibly can to the cause."

"I had a chance to produce an icon," the 27-year-old R&B singer added. "It's not every day that he collaborates. I'm honored and humbled that he trusted me. He is forever my friend, and I am forever indebted. I can't say too much else about it."

While she remained tight-lipped about the the title of the Prince-assisted song, she shared more about her collaboration with Miguel. The "Girls Like You" singer will collaborate with Monae on "Primetime", a love song that samples the Pixies' "Where Is My Mind".

Previously, Monae worked with Badu on "Q.U.E.E.N". The first single taken from Monae upcoming album was released on April 23. The music video for the single was viewed by more than 4 million YouTube viewers in a week. According to Nielson SoundScan, the track has sold 31,000 copies.

"The Electric Lady" is scheduled to hit stores next September.
