Janelle Monae's Electric Lady disc arrived in stores today and she celebrated the release with a star-studded release party and performance last night.

Sponsored by Target, CoverGirl and Sonos, the party kicked off earlier in the day with the launch of Electric Pirate Radio, a limited-time radio station broadcast from a ship off the waters off the Hudson River (clever tie-in to Janelle running "Android" web series).

Janelle moved the crowd with songs from the new disc which features collaborations with Erykah, Solange, Prince, Miguel, Esperanza. 



And on late night television.....

Earlier in the evening, Janelle taped a performance for “Dance Apocalyptic” on "The Late Show with David Letterman". During his intro, David described Janelle as, “The hardest working woman is show business.”  And chick danced all over his desk.  Literally.
