Janelle Monae stopped by 106 & Park to premiere her new video "Q.U.E.E.N." featuring Eryka Badu.
The lyrics are already thought-provoking. The video? Even more so. Badu and Monae together is pure awesomeness.

Diagnosis: The booty don't lie....
Here is the NEW Janelle Monae song "Q.U.E.E.N." featuring Erykah Badu, our DrFunkenberry Jam Of The Week!
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.

JAM. DANCE. FUNK OUT. We agree!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Funk It!!!
Janelle Monae visited Jimmy Fallon where she covered "Little Wing" by Jimi Hendrix with The Roots backing her up.
I must say the performance was pretty bad ass.
Check it out above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Who is the hottie behind Questlove? Hello JDG!
Awesome! Just awesome! Joining Pink, Sofia Vergara, and Ellen DeGeneres as a Cover Girl model is Janelle Monae.
Janelle had this to say about her new gig;
"I'm so excited to be a Cover Girl. I love Cover Girl's mission statement that everyone is a cover girl."
We are EXTREMELY happy that Janelle was chosen! Good choice Cover Girl!-DocFB
If you have had your TV on the background while doing stuff, you have more than likely heard "We Are Young" by Fun. The song is everywhere.
We dig the song. Not so sure about that tongue action at the end but ok then.
The original and video version feature Janelle Monae where Fun are dressed much better than thier Letterman appearance.
Does anyone know if Janelle has performed the song live with Fun?
Hope you enjoy the performance!-DocFB
Music icon Prince sure has a sense of humor. Along with a musical message to The Time/Original 7ven's Terry Lewis, he sent the video above. This video is too funny. "Thumbs up for rock & roll?" all right then.
When we first saw this video, I was like Waa?.... but by the end, it had us laughing.
Not only was this sent to Terry Lewis but also Paul Peterson aka St. Paul who was in the Prince band, The Family, who now call themselves FDeluxe.
We chatted briefly with Paul about things and will have some very cool stuff coming your way soon, including that new rehearsal jam that PRINCE sent his and our way. Seriously, we cannot wait to give it to you. Sometime this week, we promise!!!!!
Speaking of opening acts, we have heard of some other possible opening acts for dates on the tour;
Delilah and Janelle Monae just MIGHT be in the purple live experience.
What did U think of the video message?
Who do you want to open for PRINCE?
What did Terry Lewis think?
2 be continued and answered......sooner than U think!-DocFB
Here is exclusive coverage and photos of Prince and The NPG playing at the NPG Music And Arts Festival Saturday, August 6th. These photos are stunning. It is a shame the weather cut this show short because by photos alone, it sure looks like Prince was bringing it.
Just shaking my head as I think of the songs he has been performing lately. "Gold", "What's My Name" "Calhoun Square" "Mutiny" and I could go on. The Icon could do a month of shows without doing the same song twice. We know it.
We have a feeling that day 2 of the NPG Music And Arts Festival is going to be even more amazing with Janelle Monae, Chaka Khan, and Nikka Costa performing before Prince and The NPG take the stage to funk you up yet again. To top it off, the special guest will be Maceo Parker! Seriously, Copenhagen be shakin'. Even in the rain, you guys stayed. It was a downpour and Prince was still bringing it.
It is very rare that Prince takes a bad shot but the shot of Prince getting rained on along with all of these I dig. I think we should petition the first 2 photos to be posters or something. They are that great.
We really hope rain does not play a factor in any of the shows for day 2 of the festival especially during Prince and the NPG's closing set.
We hope you enjoy the exclusive coverage and photos of Prince and The NPG. We don't speak for Prince or the NPG, but I am sure they thank each and every one of you for braving the weather and supporting the Festival.-Dr.FB
