Dirty Computer is the third studio album by American singer Janelle Mone, released on April 27, 2018 by Wondaland Arts Society, Bad Boy Records and Atlantic Records. It is the follow-up to her studio albums The ArchAndroid (2010) and The Electric Lady (2013) and her first album to not be a part of Cindi Mayweather’s Metropolis narrative. The concept album was preceded by three singles, “Make Me Feel”, “Django Jane”, and “Pynk”, and one promotional single, “I Like That”, and its release was accompanied by a 46-minute narrative film project of the same name. The album received widespread critical acclaim upon release, and peaked at number six on the US Billboard 200.

“Yoga” was an ostensibly minor part of the Janelle Mone discography by the arrival of Dirty Computer. Three years old and outshined by another Wondaland release, Jidenna’s “Classic Man,” it nevertheless became Mone’s first single to hit the Billboard Hot 100. That Mone hadn’t previously hit the chart as a headliner was further evidence of a flawed industry, given that she and primary collaborators Nate Wonder and Chuck Lightning had been making songs with pop appeal for nearly a decade. “Yoga” did show that Mone was more open to messing with contemporary trends. Moreover, the song’s humanized, sexually uninhibited, and anti-authoritarian qualities — she was earthbound, celebrating her body, asserting “You cannot police me” — also indicated the course she has taken with her third album. Oddly enough, “Make Me Feel,” the one Dirty Computer track on which Mone employs a wholly pop songwriting team including Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, and Mattman & Robin, is the funkiest and friskiest number here, clearly influenced by the late (and uncredited) Prince. Mone and her trusty Wondaland partners, the album’s dominant creative force, colorfully twist and flip new wave-leaning pop with booming bass drums and rattling percussion. They transmit powerful and defiant jubilance in response to “wack ass fuckboys everywhere (from the traphouse to the White House) who make the lives of little brown girls so damn hard,” among dozens of other inspirations Mone acknowledges in the essential liner notes. Almost every track is densely packed with quotables delivered in approaches that shift from easygoing elegance to hard-fought, triumphant conviction. The latter approach yields the album’s apex, “Django Jane,” in which Mone raps throughout with inhuman precision, threatening a pussy riot, declaring “We ain’t hidden no more,” and uplifting the “highly melanated” while dropping some of the set’s few sci-fi allusions, “Made a fandroid outta yo’ girlfriend” among them. Not to be lost in all the power moves are indirect and direct references to a romantic relationship — another form of dissent — referenced and explored throughout, from the glowing “Crazy, Classic, Life” through the fiery “So Afraid,” the only moment of emotional fragility. While this is easily the most loaded Mone album in terms of guests, with Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder, and Grimes among the contributors, there’s no doubt that it’s a Wondaland product. It demonstrates that artful resistance and pop music are not mutually exclusive.
