Sex Jam Alert! Janelle Monae Recruits Miguel for "PrimeTime"

Janelle Monae teamed up with pint-sized slow jam maestro/part-time martial artist Miguel on "PrimeTime," a track from the Atlanta R&B/soul songbird's new album, The Electric Lady (out September 10)—and it's hot and sweaty to the touch. Listen above.

"Primetime" is the third track to drop from the upcoming album, following the insanely catchy "Dance Apocalyptic" and Erykah Badu-aided track "Q.U.E.E.N." All the sex jam essentials are in place: Crooning vocals? Check. Suggestive lyrics? Check. Epic guitar solo. Hell yeah. 

Monae also unveiled fall a tour in support of the new album, kicking off October 13 in Philadelphia. Check out all the dates below. Sorry, New York. No Monae for you! (At least not so far.)
