Janelle Monáe’s The Electric Lady drops next Tuesday, September 10th, but starting today, we’re exclusively streaming the talented entertainer’s debut album – for a full week.
The Billboard Music Awards were held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this evening and, much like the Grammys, wisely minimized the amount of airtime devoted to acceptance speeches in favor of wall-to-wall performances. Sadly, most of the evening was dominated by artists who, to paraphrase the fairly toasted Kid Rock, were lip-synching to pre-recorded musical tracks. However, the following five performances stood out from the pack and really delivered, demonstrating that the future of music is still shining bright.
Mariah Carey and Miguel dropped their new single, “#Beautiful,” on Monday, and it quickly rose to the top of the iTunes Singles Chart (it’s currently sitting in the #6 position). Response to this song has been incredibly positive, even if The Lambily seems to be aching for a bit more Mimi on the track. Either way, these two wasted no time in dropping a video for the song, which proves once and for all (as if there were any doubters out there!) that Mariah’s still one of the hottest chicks in the game.
