Appearing at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this month, both discussed new albums, writing and Prince.
“Expect that it will be an experience,” Janelle Monae told Billboard of her forthcoming album, “Electric Lady.” “I believe in the element of surprise, just like Prince, so I can’t speak too much. But when the timing is right, just know that it will definitely be something that we will never forget.”
In related news, Erykah Badu is writing for her next project, but she is not placing a time constraint on what could be her next studio album.
“Soon. Me soon come,” she joked with Billboard in video below. “I’m writing right now. Sometime it takes a little while. When it happens, it does.”
