Tightrope Wondamix: aka My God, What Can This Woman Not Do!

She's blown me away with her singing, she's blown me away with her dancing, she's even blown me away with her hair, and now, on this new "Wondamix" of her song "Tightrope", Janelle Monae has proven herself to be a mean rapper too. Her latest feat of genre blending features rappers B.O.B. and Lupe Fiasco, whose verses are not bad, but not particularly interesting, although you do get a nice close look at the song's sweet bass line. Once they've had their turn, Monae sings the familiar chorus, and then launches into a few verses of her own, putting the guys to shame.

She really can do it all, and she does it all magnificintly. If for some reason you haven't heard The ArchAndoird, her fantasticly genre-bending debut album yet, do so as soon as humanly possible.
