    Man he mentioned Andra Day, as sexy as she is imo she is everywhere and has no hits like that except one song.

    Janelle Monae made Tightrope, Cold War and her song Yoga went Gold.

    I admit her being in the LGBT helped boost her stock and raise her profile as I said but her and Andra Day are pretty much in the same boat. Rise Up was years ago and she is still in every award show and getting major push though her music flops. You also had those 5th Harmony Girls no one knew of being pushed heavily yet no one knew who they was at the time. I think 5th Harmony was what plants actually look like in the industry because they came out of nowhere however with Janelle we can pin point her start.


    It means Critically Acclaimed. Basically that the critics approve it and feel it's great work but I don't put much weight in that cause her recent album was critically acclaimed with music journalist praising it but the album itself in my ears wasn't good.

    Which goes back to the point I previously made: it's the network. If you perform on these CBS specials, you will be performing at the Grammys. When LL Cool J was hosting these shows and presided over the Grammys Awards shows, it was no coincidence that he also starred in CSI and stayed performing at these CBS specials including getting his own Kennedy's Center honor. LL is an icon, but the Grammys don't exactly acknowledge legendary rappers like that that are still living.

    not even just the low - from like 02-10 she was at the forefront of pop with britney, gaga, katy perry, fergie, gwen stefani, etc, and is still putting up big tour and decent album numbers. comparing janelle monae is like comparing goapele to beyonce, yea, one has a nice little niche, but as far as popularity, they're not neck and neck

    Sorry fam, gotta stop you right there. that "ONE SONG" is more than JM :pachaha:

    yet she appears at every A list music industry function, has started doing major studio movies etc etc...

    all i'm saying is the doors opening up for her and those huge budget music videos ain't matching her success as a musician.

    that's the premise of this entire thread bruh

    That one song went platinum, Janelle's song Yoga went Gold, plus her artist Jidenna has a platinum hit with Classic Man.
