Late Night Pick: Janelle Monae

The funky alternative R&B/neo-sci-fi-soul powerhouse, Janelle Monae, will be on the Arsenio Hall Show tonight. Arsenio is on WUPV at 11 PM here in Richmond. Check your local listings for channel and time in your area.

I've seen Janelle lately on SNL and Later with Jools Holland and she never fails to get my booty shaking and bring a smile to face. She can mix 60's girl band backing vocals, with a 70's horn section and 2010 beats and make it all work with her personality, beauty, singing and dancing. She could become huge but hopefully we'll get to see her at The National before she hits it big. If you want a quick little synopsis of her career up to now, check out THIS slide show on the BET site.
