Janelle Monae Excited About Paisley Park Q.U.E.E.N. Remixes; More On The Way!

Janelle Monae & Erykah Badu Q.U.E.E.N. Cover

Janelle Monae is very excited about the remixes coming out of Paisley Park for her song "Q.U.E.E.N." even tweeting about it when she hasn't heard them all yet!

We have been told Joshua Welton is doing multiple "Q.U.E.E.N." remixes and all of them are back by Paisley Park!

Congrats to J.W. and we are looking forward to them being released!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Those familiar with the 3rdEye TV livestream have gotten an earful of the funky fresh remixes......

  1. So looking forward 2 hearing What my Boi JAM has done 4 tha Remixes of Q.U.E.E.N. I know the Remixes are going 2 be FANTASTIC. ROCK IT OUT JAM!!

  2. Very nice to hear Prince is getting back to “Paisley Park” business when it comes to getting involved with remixing tracks for artists like Janelle Monae. It’s about time!

    In a perfect world, Prince’s boutique record label “Paisley Park” would still be a viable, strong record label like back in the 80s. Too many of his past “Paisley Park” releases are collecting dust, never having been rereleased in expanded form with the original albums added with bonus tracks, remixes, b-sides, demos:

    Jill Jones
    The Family
    Good Question
    Tony Lemans
    Mazarati
    Taja Sevelle
    Mavis Staples – Time Waits for No One
    Ingrid Chavez – May 19, 1992
    Carmen Electra
    T.C. Ellis – True Confessions
    Madhouse 8
    Madhouse 16
    Apollonia 6 (pre-Paisley Park)
    Vanity 6 (pre-Paisley Park)

    It’s sad to me that because Prince hasn’t embraced his back catalogue, that all the above artists are slowly becoming forgotten for the current and next generations. Horrific really because all the above are such wonderful releases with amazing songs in them. And, as far as Tony Lemans is concerned, because he is no longer with us, having died in a car accident years ago, his memory and the legacy of his talent is also being forgotten by his debut album not having been rereleased. It amazes me when I see what DOES get rereleased in the record industry compared with the fact that all the above Paisley Park releases don’t. Tragic, really.

    And, if Prince’s not having rereleased the above has something to do with his fractured relationship with Warner Brothers, I really feel Prince should have someone in his camp have the job of working with Warner Brothers in getting proper rereleases of ALL the above in EXPANDED form. 2CDs and maybe even a 2CD/DVD with the DVD having all accompanying videos and live appearances on TV shows from the time. In a perfect world, mini-documentaries on the making of said albums would be a wonderful addition. As we all know in Prince’s world though and in a business sense, it’s far from perfect, so I don’t really see it happening, which again is so tragic when you realize all the above acts I mentioned will slowly become even more forgotten, world wide and for future generations. Incredibly depressing.

  3. I love the remixes too! Great! I didnt know Joshua did them. EVERYBODY there can do SOMETHING! Thanx Doc! sharing!
