Back in 2008, Christian John Wikane profiled innovative R&B songstress Janelle Monáe and called her “a freedom fighter, a daydreamer, a storyteller, and, above all, a fiercely independent artist whose music bridges the fringe with the mainstream.” She was a fairly off-the-radar performer then, but now she’s poised for major exposure with her new album The ArkAndroid releasing on Bad Boy Records this week. On her new video for “Tightrope”, she teams up with OutKast’s Big Boi and channels some fine Michael Jackson dance moves.
