Janelle Monáe's New Songs Intertwine Rap & Funk

Check out the latest from Janelle Monáe - mad lyrics and potent song-execution.

(AllHipHop Music) Janelle Monáe isn't playing. The singer dropped a pair of instantly impactful videos. One is a Hip-Hop song that has her spitting bars with fevor and the second is a funky diddy that is certainly going to get folks talking. "Make Me Feel" offers a retro vibe that evokes Prince in a lot of ways. With Ms. Monae and a bunch of legs, Tessa Thompson and a cast of characters, the visuals are intoxicating and edgy.

Monáe also has something for the rap crowd. "Django Jane" is a rapid fire excursion that spews pro-woman bars and more than delivers lyrically. Check them both out below.
