    Huh?!? I’m asking questions that you refuse to answer. Plus I told you JM hasn’t even gone gold

    You counter by comparing her to an artist that’s gone platinum - your response to that fact:

    “Her music is played on commercials!!” :russ:

    Just stop it...you’d have been better off not responding at all.

    And you're wrong.

    You're talking about an artist who has one platinum single that went platinum off the fact that was promoted in placed in all these events. See my response. And if we're talking about certified singles, Janelle Monae has gone gold with "Yoga".

    To add insult to injury in regard to the Grammys, Janelle also performed as a guest because she appeared on a record that went #1. If you'd read through the posts, specifically mine, you'd know that.

    Critically acclaimed means...the entertainment press and critics, the people who dictate what is considered good and what is considered bad, likes a particular work of art.

    Critically acclaimed doesn't mean someone is going to push an artist on the public because most works aren't for mass consumption. Brian Eno's music is not made for mass consumption but Timbaland's is. Brian Eno is still considered one of the greatest music producers of all time.

    Another example, Dark Souls series is a masterpiece of gaming. Critics love it and die hard gamers play it. Call of Duty is one of the most commercially successful gaming franchises of all time and most critics and die hard gamers think it is reheated garbage but it is fun to play.

    If someone said Call of Duty is better than Dark Souls, most die hard gamers would be blank faced.

    There is difference between liking something and whether or not something is good. Dark Souls is objectively a good game. Janelle Monae objectively makes good music. You can like it or dislike it, but nobody can say it is bad because they simply don't like it.

    Janelle Monae's last 2 albums were Billboard Top 10.

    People are acting like Janelle Monae is some obscure artist and inaccessible, like Death Grips or Princess Nokia. People know who she is and buys her records, the people in this thread acting like she's a plant or doesn't sell, just doesn't listen to anything that isn't on the radio, a popping Spotify playlist or popping on YouTube.

    Lol are you seriously mad because Obama asked her to sing for him like three times .


    Be mad people try to preserve our good black artist brehs .

    Janelle is no where near a plant .

    I saw her perform at Howard when she wasnt known at all .

    Any ounce of fame she has she had to grind for .

    When I met her she asked me how I found out about her .

    I told her my friend put me on . She thanked me for the support and gave me a hug .

    She was Nice person .

    Her music isn’t for everyone I understand that but y’all not gonna call her a plant .

    You’re also talking about a newer artist as well, one that only has ONE album, JM has three. All flops, no number ones.

    And again, we’re talking about her overall accomplishments, your bullet pointing everything so you can have an argument

    What’s funny is I asked a few pages back if there’s EVER been an artist with Janelle Monaes mediocre accomplishments to get A-list treatment, Sandra Day isn’t in movies breh...

    Try to respond without moving the goal post any more

    She had a whole team she doesn’t down play them at all .
    They write on each other stuff .

    They actually compose the music and record live .

    Just like the old days who the fukk is still doing that .

    Man I remember watching the making of arch android I was amazed at how they came up with stuff .

    It’s just them parroting what they’ve been told to say

    Bjork is an artist that’s critically acclaimed, she’s not burning up the radio, but she sells records, enough people care about what she’s doing to spend money on it.

    JM can’t say this...throw some janelle monae on at a black function and see the response you get :comeon:

    Who's moving goal posts here? The premise is the success =/= matching the recognition. The premise of this thread totally dismisses Janelle having been in this for years. And Andra Day has no number ones and her album flopped.

    And again, you're wrong. As a featured artist, she has a shared #1 with Fun. Again, it's one of the reasons she has PERFORMED AT THE GRAMMYS. If I'm not mistaken, that's the only other Grammys performance she had before last night.

    You mentioned movies and artists have had flopped albums and went on to star in big movies.

    though her presence is a little odd given her actual lack of popular songs, her growth seems organic. she starts small and gets critical acclaim even when regular folks arent going crazy about her. then add the recent lesbian stuff and it is understandable that she is now used for "representation" purposes but her road to this point was hard work first.

    I’m not mad breh. She seems nice. Its just very predictable. During the award show I seen her be promoted as a singer for another honors show coming up within the next week or so.
