justin-janelle

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?

Which Recurring Musical Franchise Is The Most Successful?

musicfranchises

If you’re asking yourself, “Hey, didn’t Justin Timberlake already release an album earlier this year?”, the answer is yes, yes he did. The 20/20 Experience came out in March and, thanks to pent-up demand for new Timbertunes, has sold 2.279MM copies, making it the best-selling LP of the year so far. Apparently, our pal JT abides by the ole “Strike while the iron is hot” philosophy, which is why you see that the The 20/20 Experience: Part II was just released yesterday.
