Janelle Monáe ushers in “The Age Of Pleasure”

After much anticipation Janelle Monáe’s new album, The Age Of Pleasure, is here. 

Released at midnight, Monáe, a Warner Music artiste, celebrated, as she has over the past few months, with another skin-bearing post, UPROXX reports.

Shortly after midnight on Friday, adds the outlet, Monáe made note of the album’s release with a video, in which they stand on the beach and show off a cropped shirt bearing the album title. She then takes it off, along with her shorts, leaving her naked (albeit blurred out) as she jubilantly runs into the ocean, all set to the song “Water Slide.”

The same clip, according to UPROXX, is included in a longer June 7 video Monáe shared to announce the album’s tracklist.

This goes along with a recent interview quote that has essentially been Monáe’s mantra lately: “I’m much happier when my titties are out and I can run around free.” 

The album features Grace Jones, Doechii, CKay, Seun Kuti And Egypt 80, Sister Nancy, Amaarae, and even actress Nia Long.

The Age Of Pleasure is out now via Wondaland Arts Society/Atlantic Records. Find more information here.
