Janelle Monáe Collabed With The Late Prince On Forthcoming Album

– Contributed by Tayler Adigun

Janelle Monaé is working on her third studio album, Dirty Computer, and has addressed the comparisons between her single “Make Me Feel” and Prince’s “Kiss”.

“Prince actually was working on the album with me before he passed on to another frequency, and helped me come up with sounds” Monae shared in an interview with BBC Radio 1.

Earlier this year Prince’s DJ, Lenka Paris, shared in a Facebook post (now deleted) that the “Doves Cry” singer did in fact write the synth part of “Make Me Feel.”

The extent to which Prince was involved with the album is not clear but more insight may be given after the album drops April 6.
