Song of the Week: “57821” – Janelle Monae

18 Feb

Even though “Cold War” is my favorite tune from The ArchAndroid, hearing “57821” was what convinced me to purchase the album. The production is dreamy and luscious, yes, but this track is not at all shaped as a single—fitting neatly into the record’s Metropolis theme. With such a great song created only for album listeners, I figured the record was truly and seriously concept-driven and worth buying.
