The singer is confirmed to perform live on the BET Awards on Sunday, June 30.
Janelle Monae and Atlantic Records have set a date for the singer’s highly anticipated sophomore studio set.
The Electric Lady will be released Sept. 10, led by the smooth single “Q.U.E.E.N." featuring Erykah Badu and the up-tempo “Dance Apocalyptic,” which was revealed Friday. Listen to the new track here.

The new album follows Monae’s critically acclaimed debut, The ArchAndroid, released on May 18, 2010. Though it peaked at No. 17 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, The ArchAndroid earned Monae a Grammy nomination for best contemporary R&B album.
