Janelle Monae- "Simply Irresistible"

The Electric Lady Miss Janelle Monáe drops a synth-strutting rework of Robert Palmer's '88 smash "Simply Irresistible" for E's Red Carpet Live coverage. The android funkstress applied her high velocity vocals to an electrified "Weird Science"-esque synth treatment of Palmer's driven rocker--somehow more in line with the textures of the 80's than the original-- known best for its iconic mean-muggin lady ensemble visual. Its a one-off no doubt, but that shouldn't stop you from rocking with Miss Monáe and the funkonauts she keeps on hand. You can listen to Janelle Monáe's take on Palmer's hit below.
