Janelle Monae I Got The Juice
Janelle Monae’s third studio album Dirty Computer arrived Friday, and it continues in the Prince-esque future-funk style she’s established with the pre-release singles. “I Got The Juice,” one of the album’s immediate highlights, pairs her with another forward-thinking genre synergist in Pharrell, whose touch is audible throughout, both in the bouncy production and exclamatory call-and-response vocals. It could easily follow N*E*R*D’s Rihanna-assisted “Lemon” in a playlist, but like this song, it’s the female lead that makes this song what it is. Janelle continues to build on tha themes she built on “Pynk” as she lambasts Donald Trump for his predatory comments: “If you try to grab my pussy cat, this pussy grab you back (hey!).” She transitions seamlessly from funky melodicism to confident raps and finds chemistry with her collaborator as two pass vocal duties back and forth.
Pharrell has been adventurous in his recent collaborations, showing up to Rae Sremmurd’s “Chanel” and producing Migos’ “Stir Fry” earlier this year.
