Janelle Monae ft. Big Boi "Tightrope"

With a booming drum and bass mixed with a little tambourine getting its shimmy on in the background and "the funkiest horn section" bringing the heat, Janelle and her band once again provide that ingenious funk and quirk that's been her signature. "Tightrope" is that tune that doesn't just give a little leg and take it right back. Instead, Monae serves up a raucous juke-joint beat with an extra bit of soul that will have you breaking out the jimmy legs in a minute. If you listen closely, you can hear little inflections of a young Michael Jackson or even James Brown when Monae says "scene".

A free download of the track will be made available on Janelle's site tomorrow.
