This is probably the most excited I have ever been to share the song of the week... This week song has quickly become one of my favorite songs, and only because its a song that can save a life. Its fast paced, it has meaningful and beautiful lyrics, and its beautifully song, by one of (soon to be) the greatest neo-funk, neo-soul, r&b, afro-punk singers, in the world. Cold War by Janelle Monae is a song that goes along with the story of Cindi Maywheather, an android who is on the run in Metropolis for falling in love with a human... and after being on the run for a while, she is starting to become a monster. The story is greatly explained in the new album, due to release May 18th called "The Archandroid." But this song is probably one of the most passionate songs I have ever heard. And Janelle sings it beautifully. Seeing it played live also sparks the imagination that she injects with such a lively and beautiful stage show, full of sound, dance, and a flying pompadour hair style. So, without further adu... Cold War.
