Billboard calls the track unpredictable and says it is filled with some Princely guitar work.
Monae takes on religious tolerance and other things in the 5:12 track.
She explained to Billboard:
“This song is inspired by private conversations she (Erykah) and I have had and continue to have,”
“She’s a great friend to me; she’s like a big sister and it’s a song about private dialogue that she and I have had.”
There is no release date yet for the song but their will be an upcoming tour. There is discussion by many on the web about if the song is discussing Janelle’s sexuality. Janelle somewhat responded in the Tweet below:
Late 2 class? “Q.U.E.E.N.”was inspired by private discussions between Erykah & me. JAM. DANCE. FUNK OUT. Listen in the car. dialogue later.
