Old School/New School: Breakout R&B Divas

gladysknight and Janelle Monae

One sang about a “Midnight Train to Georgia, another is a pompadour clad Q.U.E.E.N from Wondaland. Both seven-time GRAMMY award-winner, Gladys Knight and The Electric Lady Janelle Monáe have taken R&B and Soul music to unparalleled heights. The classic sounds of love from the Empress of Soul during the golden years of Motown set the tone for the eclectic vibrations and progressively flirtatious bebop anthems of The ArchAndroid.

Which hit song from either Gladys Knight or Janelle Monáe is your favorite?
