Janelle Monáe's Album Release Party Is Electric
By Michelle Salgado

The Electric Lady, Miss Janelle Monáe, could not have thrown a more perfect launch party for the release of her sophomore album. Thrown in collaboration with Target on a pier in New York City, the party featured appearances by Big Boi, Erykah Badu, B.o.B, Perez Hilton, Miguel, Justine Skye and P. Diddy himself! Party goers arrived at dusk and walked down the pier as they were gifted with Covergirl cosmetics that were handed out by Janelle-clones and special Electric Lady mixed drinks.

 

Once they made their way towards the main stage guests were surprised to find an actual pirate radio ship (from which Janelle would later emerge!). Midway through the party Janelle took the stage and played a slew of songs from both her albums as well as an incredible rendition of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” along with a few other surprises. The night ended with Janelle pulling fans on stage for a “Dance Apocalyptic” dance party and the crowd went wild both on stage and off and Janelle ended the evening dancing with her fans and friends.
