Soul meets big band in Janelle Monáe‘s new song, Sincerely Jane. However, don’t let the eclectic music distract from the message Janelle is trying to deliver on this, her first “suite” release, The Chase. Singing about drugs, violence and the lack of true life and love, there isn’t anything the Kansas City, Kansas native doesn’t feel comfortable covering. The “suite” is Janelle’s way of delivering music in which, instead of releasing several songs on one album per year, she will release only a few songs in a “suite” four times a year. Whether this system will work out for the singer has yet to be determined, but, regardless, Sincerely Jane should grab the attention of every listener, whether for the music or for the truth she speaks.
