Stream Janelle Monáe's 'The Electric Lady'

It's always rough coming back from a three-day weekend, but at least we had a few musical bright spots on this Tuesday-that-feels-like-Monday. Perhaps most notably, Janelle Monáe's brand new album The Electric Lady is streaming courtesy of VH1.

If you're unfamiliar, Monáe's discography to this point revolves around a fictional future dystopia where androids are oppressed by humans. Her alter ego, an android named Cindi Mayweather, is a time traveling savior whose story is told through the slickest fusion of pop, funk, R&B, and hip-hop out there. Besides an active imagination, Monáe has a genre-bending musical sensibility that makes her albums feel like an event you should probably witness.

The story might already be in progress, but it's worth jumping on board anyway. Stream the album below. The Electric Lady is in stores September 10.
