Janelle Monae & Miguel Slow Things Down On “PrimeTime”: Hear The Duet

By: Carl Williott / August 19, 2013

One of the most anticipated tracks on Janelle Monae‘s forthcoming The Electric Lady is her duet with Miguel, “PrimeTime.” Today (August 19) the anticipation is over, as Monae posted the song, and it’s a steamy slow jam carried by the pair’s vocal flexing. The delicate arrangement consists of a simple beat, some palm-muted guitars and a few echoes and coos in the background, so perhaps you were expecting more fireworks from the “Q.U.E.E.N.” android and the man who botched a flying stage leap. But there’s still plenty of spark on the jam, thanks to the passionate vocal turns and a pretty sick Prince-esque guitar solo that carries on through the old school fadeout.

Hear the duet below.
