Vocal range: C#3 - E5 (C7)


Significant high notes:

C7 ("Come Alive(War of the Roses)")
G6 ("Come Alive(War of the Roses)")
B♭5 ("Come Alive(War of the Roses)")
F♯5 ("Cybertronic Purgatory")
E5 ("Tightrope", "Mr. President", "Dance Apocalyptic")
D5 ("Neon Valley Street", "Dance Apocalyptic")
C♯5 ("BaBopByeYa",)

D3 ("Queen")
E♭3 ("BaBopByeYa")
E3 ("Mr. President")

As the pioneer of what has come to be known as the "afro-future" genre, Janelle Monae sings a mix of Soul, Blues, Funk, jazz and good old Rock 'n Roll. Though her timbre is very similar to Alicia Keys, Janelle shows far more versatility in the styles of what she sings, though keeping a similar amount of power and range.

*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.

This is my first attempt both at note watching and at thread making, so if I made any mistakes, please point them out for me!

I'm also unsure if the screams in war of the roses are full or not:

0:28, and 2:18

I'm also wondering what the pitch is on the rap part from 5:00 till the end:

Not bad Smile

B♭5 at 0:28 sounds black, but the G6 and C7 don't. Unless we're being fooled by overtones and she doesn't break up to the upper sixth octave and does relatively light-toned upper fifth octave notes that produce super strong overtones, but that sounds implausible (apparently that has happened with Robert Plant and Jon Bon Jovi, though).

The final rapping doesn't even get lower that like D4, as far as I can tell (the "oh"s in the background in that part bottom at like G♯3... not significant IMO when it's that short and random).
HOWEVER, it sounds like she goes down to a fleeting D3 at 4:01, and seconds before that she hit a strongish F♯3.

Thank you very much! Thread has been updated.
