The ArchAndroid soared critically despite meeting commercial ambivalence. Yet Janelle Monáe's 2010 can hardly be deemed a disappointment. Her bold musical vision led to a dream-fulfilling invitation: Prince — his Purpleness — asked her along for a string of year-end stadium dates. We've long loved Ms. Monáe at CL, and her continuous progression toward super-stardom fills our hearts with joy. I think I've got something in my eye.
