Citing a an unspecified "scheduling conflict," Janelle Monaé has dropped off the lineup for this year's Boston Calling festival.

"Sadly, due to a scheduling conflict, I am unable to perform at 2019 Boston Calling," Monaé wrote in a note to fans posted by the festival. "All my love to my fandroids, and best of luck to the Boston Calling organizers on a sure to be amazing festival."

The band Chvrches have been added to the lineup for May 24 to replace Monaé.
