Single Review – Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel

In new single Make Me Feel, Janelle Monae has bought Prince’s Kiss to a modern audience. The silky tones of Monae’s vocal melt over effortlessly funky hooks, quirky percussion and plush bass, smoothly singing lyrics deliberating lust and her sexuality; the subject of many a Janelle Monae interview. It is a song that is truly alive with colour. The eightiesness of the track makes it undeniably fun, with velvety harmonies adding a layer of sophistication to the pop-y single. There’s something electrifyingly cinematic about the song, which makes the announcement of her new album – Dirty Computer – very exciting indeed.
