Janelle Monae Discusses The Wondaland Mission & Introduces Jidenna On Ebro In The Morning
Jidenna and Wondaland's leading (and electric) lady Janelle Monáe hit Ebro In The Morning today to chop it up with the morning crew and provide the new talent with a proper introduction on the airwaves. While most of the interview was devoted to dodging Ebro's advances, Miss Monae did manage to lay out the mission statement of her movement, bent on providing a platform for her collective and mentoring them in the same way Stevie Wonder, Prince and Puffy have for her over the years. It was lighthearted and candid interview that exposed the origins of their relationship and certainly a moment of shine for the Wondaland crew, just after strutting their stuff at a listening party for the forthcoming Eephus compilation this week in NYC. You can watch Janelle Monáe and Jidenna's wholly entertaining interview on Ebro In The Morning below, but stay tuned. The Wondaland compilation will be hitting digital and physical shelves May 5th, featuring Janelle, Jidenna, Roman GianArthur, Deep Cotton, St. Beauty and more. If you're looking for some extracurricular listening from the "Classic Man," jump back and peep the visual for his debut track and cop it on iTunes today.
