Hear New Music From Pop’s Biggest New Artists

RobinThicke-472x472We’ve got new music from some of pop music’s powerhouse artists on Slacker’s New Pop First! 

Even though Robin Thicke has the #1 song in the country right now with “Blurred Lines,” but he’s not wasting any time. He’s released a new single that features Kendrick Lamar called “Give It 2 U.” In a recent interview, he said: “It’s very Michael Jackson, Prince but also pretty hip-hop. It’s a big, shiny pop record.”

Janelle Monáe is also gearing up for the release of her second album “The Electric Lady,” which drops September 10th. She recently announced that Prince will guest on the new record, and she’s released a new track from the album, called “Dance Apocalyptic.”

You can hear Robin Thicke, Janelle Monáe and other tracks that your Slacker curators think will be tomorrow’s hits today on New Pop First.

 

Song Stuck in Our Head – Janelle Monáe’s “Q.U.E.E.N.”

Janelle MonáeFresh off of her stellar performance at the Coachella Music Festival, Janelle Monáe is gearing up for the release of her forthcoming album, The Electric Lady.

Monáe’s first single is a funky collaboration with Erykah Badu called “Q.U.E.E.N.” which she says is an acronym inspired by personal conversations between her and Badu.

Remember, you can listen to “Q.U.E.E.N.” as many times as you want–it’s the Song Stuck in My Head on Slacker.

 

Update: The week to listen to “Q.U.E.E.N.” on demand has passed- but you can still hear the tune (plus all of Janelle) on Slacker here.
