ESSENCE is reporting that Covergirl spokeswoman Janelle Monae is gearing up for a duet with the reigning high priestess of soul Ms. Erykah Badu. The two award-winning vocalists will appear on the track “Q.U.E.E.N.” a new single from Monae’s upcoming album Electric Lady.

The Atlanta-based singer made the big announcement Friday with plans to debut the song via her website on Monday, April 22 at 7:54 P.M. Electric Lady  will be available later on this year and is the follow up to her 2010 hit album The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III).

Kudos to Monae and Badu! RC is looking forward to this brilliant mash-up of musically gifted artists.
