    Considering she provides backing vocals on the current number one song in the country, fun.'s "We Are Young", it's easy to forget that Janelle Monae has a pretty remarkable career of her own. She received a Grammy nomination for her debut full-length The Archandroid (Suites II and III). She's touring right now and at a show in Mexico, she performed a sultry and sexy cover of Jimi Hendrix's classic "Little Wing." In a year where sexuality in female music seems to be defined by the over-the-top theatrics of Lana Del Rey, it's refreshing to see a woman capturing the sexuality of a timeless song with subtlety and grace.

    Word of warning though. You're going to want to turn the volume on this song down both on your computer speakers as well as on YouTube because its volume is naturally very loud and there's some clown that appears to be screaming directly into the camera's microphone.
