Fans of Janelle Monáe’s music were quick to spot its apparent Prince influences thanks to the funky rhythm of that amazing synth line on her new single ‘Make Me Feel’.
But it appears the Purple One himself may have actually been involved in the track. Monáe previously told BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac that she had been working with the iconic artist “before he passed on to another frequency, and helped me come up with sounds”.
“And I really miss him, you know, it’s hard for me to talk about him,” she added. “But I do miss him, and his spirit will never leave me.”
