Janelle Monáe "I Like That"

Janelle Monae is slated to release her first album in five years with Dirty Computer on Friday (April 27). On the heels of the release of three singles, the 32-year-old unleashes the visual to her fresh R&B bop, "I Like that." Additionally, the Wondaland Arts Society CEO shared the dates for her return to the road on the Dirty Computer Tour.

The 27-city trek begins on June 11 in Seattle before making stops at major cities across North America and finally culminates on Aug. 4 at the Tabernacle in Atlanta. The tour will be assisted by singing duo St. Beauty, who is currently signed to Monae's Wondaland Arts Society label. Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 2 through Live Nation's official website.

"I Like That" serves as the fourth single prior to the release of her highly anticipated studio album. The track follows "Make Me Feel," "Django Jane" and "PYNK." The creative visual gives fans a peek into her multifaceted ability as a creative and finds the star actress telling you what she enjoys while diffusing sexual tension in the air. 

The genre-blending artist keeps it brutally honest when it comes to accepting her eccentricities, but realizes that's what makes her great. "'Cause I’m crazy and I’m sexy and I’m cool/ Little rough around the edges but I keep it smooth/ I’m always left of center and that’s right where I belong/ I’m the random minor note you hear in major songs," she persistently croons.

Check out the "I Like That" video as well as the rest of her tour dates below. Dirty Computer releases on April 27.
