What: The visual album Dirty Computer
Who: Janelle Monáe
Why we care: Janelle Monáe is obviously no stranger to concept albums. The Grammy-nominated singer has spent the majority of her career building a veritable universe around her alter ego Cindi Mayweather through her albums Metropolis: Suite I (The Chase), The ArchAndroid, and The Electric Lady. But Monáe seems to have outdone herself with her upcoming visual album Dirty Computer. Billed as an “emotion picture,” Dirty Computer Monáe and Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok, Creed, Dear White People) in some kind of futuristic, neon odyssey that is bound to be yet another visual (and sonic) banger from Monáe.
