Janelle Monáe's upcoming sophomore album, 'The Electric Lady,' will include some big-name features from the likes of Prince and Miguel.

Janelle revealed in a new Billboard cover story that she will "tell universal stories in unforgettable ways" on the forthcoming album, slated for release in September.

"We are great friends, and he is a mentor to us, to me," she shared of Prince. "It's a beautiful thing to have a friend -- someone who cares about your career, and wants to see you go far and to push boundaries and shake up the world -- give whatever they possibly can to the cause."

Miguel is featured on a song titled 'Primetime,' which is a love duet.

Her first single, 'Q.U.E.E.N.,' features fellow songstress Erykah Badu.
