See pics from the party and performance inside and watch Janelle rock out with “Dance Apocalyptic” on "The Late Show with David Letterman."
Janelle Monae's Electric Lady disc arrived in stores today and she celebrated the release with a star-studded release party and performance last night.
Sponsored by Target, CoverGirl and Sonos, the party kicked off earlier in the day with the launch of Electric Pirate Radio, a limited-time radio station broadcast from a ship off the waters off the Hudson River (clever tie-in to Janelle running "Android" web series).
