Janelle Monáe — Crush of the Day

Our crush today is Janelle Monáe, a 26-year-old, impossibly cool R&B and soul musician signed to Bad Boy Records and Atlantic Records.

Janelle’s debut studio album, ‘The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III)’ was released in 2010 by Bad Boy Records to rave reviews, climbing to the 17th spot on the Billboard charts. It also earned our crush her very first Grammy Nominations: One for ‘Best Contemporary R&B Album’, and another for ‘Best Urban/Alternative Performance’ for her single ‘Tightrope.’ Not bad for a first studio release.

If she looks familiar, you’ve probably seen her in the video for Fun’s single, ‘We Are Young,’ a track she was featured on. She’s also performed with the likes of Outkast, Of Montreal and Big Boi. She’s no secret talent these days.

The beauty industry is taking notice of Janelle, too. CoverGirl just announced her as the newest addition to their lineup of spokeswomen. She can sell us lipstick any day. (It’s for a friend.)

Check out the video for her single, ‘Tightrope,’ and some more pics below:
