Janelle Monáe has recruited some big-name talent for her sophomore album, The Electric Lady. Erykah Badu is featured on the lead single, “Q.U.E..E.N.”, and now Billboard reports that Prince and Miguel also make appearances on the album.

Monáe said of her collaboration with Prince: “I had a chance to produce an icon. It’s not every day that he collaborates. I’m honored and humbled that he trusted me. He is forever my friend, and I am forever indebted. I can’t say too much else about it.”

As for Miguel, he is featured on a duet called “Primtime”, which samples the “ooh” section from Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” (!) atop a spare funk beat, according to Billboard.

The Electric Lady is due to arrive in September. Below, revisit the video for “Q.U.E..E.N.” featuring Badu.
