Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 is in stores now and if you buy the deluxe edition of the album, you can get two more JT tracks, “Blindness” and “Electric Lady.” Both songs are great, but one of them shares a name with Janelle Monáe‘s new double album, The Electric Lady. Monae’s album also features a song called “Electric Lady” and the coincidence has us asking a lot of questions.
Is the lady actually made of electricity? Wouldn’t being in love with a being made of electricity be dangerous? What does this lady have to do with Russian synthpop? WHO IS THIS ELECTRIC LADY?
After carefully analyzing both tracks we think we know who she is…and we think she’s the same person!
Justin Timberlake’s “Electric Lady”
So, who is Justin’s “Electric Lady”? Here’s what we know about her. She’s:
- “Got a power”
- “Reaching [his] heart fast”
- “Searching for something”
- “Energy giving”
Also, it’s important to know that there are a lot of sparks in Justin’s song. So many sparks that I’d actually be worried something might catch fire or that someone could be electrocuted if they were in a pool or lake. Also their “love will never die.” Is that supposed to be because the love will never die? Or is it because this song is about a love story between people made out of electricity and robots don’t die?
So, we have some answers about this “Electric Lady,” but not enough. Does Janelle Monáe have anything to add?
