Janelle Monae – The ArchAndroid (2010) Lyrics

Janelle Monáe’s studio debut is a genre-bending masterpiece. In a staggering 18 tracks she covers pop, rock, classical, R&B, funk, electronica, even hip-hop — and the amazing thing is that it still sounds like one unified record. Sadly she did not win any Grammys (though she did get a couple nods) for this outstanding album, but if her subsequent releases are anywhere near as good as this one, there are definitely a few golden gramophones in her future.

Best songs
“Cold War"
"Tightrope"
"Say You’ll Go"
"BaBopByeYa”

Best Rapping You’ll Ever Hear from an R&B Singer
“Dance or Die”
