Last night, Janelle Monáe celebrated the release of her new album Dirty Computer with a Spotify-hosted listening party at Mack Sennett Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Featuring four staged scenes of music videos from the project as well as cool activations such as a popcorn machine, gold bar, and graffiti mural arcade games, the venue brought the world of art and Afrofuturism to life.
In attendance were 150 invited fans from Spotify's Fans First initiative, as well as notable figures like actor Terry Crews, recording artist Jidenna, Love & Hip Hop's Masika Kalysha, and 13 Reasons Why actress Ajiona Alexus. Paris Jackson, model Shaun Ross, political pundit Angela Rye, and MACRO founder and CEO Charles D. King were also spotted in the crowd.
Around 10:00 PM, Monáe emerged from backstage and made her way through the various sets of the venue, performing songs from her project including "Screwed,""Django Jane," "Make Me Feel," "I Like That," "PYNK" and "I Got the Juice."
