New Music: Janelle Monae – Come Alive (The War of the Roses)


Janelle MonaeCome Alive (The War of the Roses)

Janelle Monae has been musical visionary of mine ever since she dropped that track “Time Will Reveal” off of that Got Purp compilation way back in the day. I’m glad that Ms Monae (who is known to read the site from time to time) is putting out new music, this time through the Kia Soul Collective.

The track, Come Alive (The War of the Roses), is a dope rendition with obvious influences from Violent Femmes’ Blister In The Sun. I hope to hear more music from Ms. Monae in the future. Talent like this should not sit on the shelf.
