Daily Nugget #11: Janelle Monáe, "Wondaland"

I only occasionally leave the sound cave for sustenance and/or diversion, so bumping into new music the old-fashioned way, i.e., hearing it on the radio, happens somewhat infrequently. But in one of those too few serendipitous moments, I heard this track and immediately needed to know whodunnit. I have been reading about Janelle Monáe's The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III) and was planning on checking out her music; well, I think I may have found my Summer Jam '10. It's relentlessly catchy and fun, and the lyrics mention droids, secret Santas, fairygods, and underpants. In other words, resistance is futile.

Janelle Monáe, "Wondaland":


  1. I don't see it. painful. it's like being trapped in a bollywood film.

  2. You see, I don't even know what kind of music this is; I would buy the album based on the cover art in an instant. Yes, I have fallen for this trap many a time! Cool drawings get me EVERY time!!

  3. I'm not sure this is a drawing, or even cover art—I'd like to believe that is what she looks like.
