Janelle Monae, who received the Rising Star Award at the 2013 Billboard Women in Music event in New York, injected some electricity into the opening day of Governors Ball on Friday.
Dressed in her usual black and white attire, Monae energetically performed tunes from second album, "The Electric Lady," which bowed at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. The album featured a stellar cast, including Prince, Erykah Badu, Solange Knowles, Miguel and Esperanza Spalding. During the festival, she talked to Billboard about her mindset during live shows and future projects.
