None other than Sean Combs signed this talented artist and made her a star. Janelle Monae is simply... great. She's not just another pretty face. She is genuinely talented. Her voice is astounding and her style in music is unique. Its unique in that it mixes funk, 60's pop, and modern hip hop. Her most noted songs are "Tight Rope" and "Cold War"... I happen to love her for a rather unknown song "Nerd Girl" which she sings with Chester French. Either way, have a listen and see for yourself why she is my artist of the month!
