Janelle Monae - Janelle Monae In Awe At Superstar Pal Prince

Janelle Monae was left stunned by her new duet partner Prince after the superstar entrusted the young soul singer to produce their collaboration without his help.

The Tightrope star teamed up with the Purple Rain icon for the song Givin' 'Em What They Love for her new album, The Electric Lady, and Monae admits she was shocked when perfectionist Prince left her in charge of fine-tuning the track.

She tells the New York Post, "I'm still pinching myself in disbelief. (Prince) doesn't do a lot of collaborations, let alone let people produce him. But he wanted me to be in control of the mixing and mastering and editing. The trust he's given me means a lot."

Prince isn't the only big star to feature on The Electric Lady - Erykah Badu, Solange Knowles and Miguel also worked on the project.
