Janelle Monáe - Metropolis: The Chase

I recently discovered Janelle Monáe, a fantastic R&B singer whose recently released concept album, Metropolis, is about a female android who falls in love with a human. Of course this is frowned upon, and the android is forced to go on the run.

It's a fun first album - if not a bit too brief - that blends a variety of styles. It even ends with a nice cover of one of my favorite songs, Charlie Chaplin's "Smile".

"Many Moons" is the first single:
