Janelle Monáe- Many Moons

Janelle Monáe originally planned to pursue a Broadway career, but found her love for music too strong. In 2007, Monáe was ready to release her first solo album, entitled "Metropolis." It was originally conceived as a concept album in four parts, or "suites," which were to be released only through her website and mp3 download sites. The plans changed when she signed with Sean "Diddy" Combs' label, Bad Boy Records. She released the album Metropolis: The Chase Suite (Special Edition) in August of 2008 and it was well-received and garnering her a 2009 Grammy nomination in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance for her song Many Moons.
