ESSENCE festival headliner, Janelle Monae dropped the first single off her highly anticipated album, The Electric Lady, entitled "Q.U.E.E.N."

The funky melody featuring neo-soul diva Erykah Badu boasts a jazzy 80s feel, as the two croon of embracing their quirks and getting down in celebration of what makes them different.

"'Q.U.E.E.N.' was inspired by private discussions between Erykah and me. It is meant to make you jam. Dance. Funk out. and dialogue later…," tweeted Monae.
