janelle monae*Grammy-nominated singer and industry sweetheart, Janelle Monae has a serious New Years plan. For 2012, she’s ready to bust out two new albums for her salivating fans, according to Singersroom.com.

She took a trip back home to Kansas City for the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.

“I am happy to be here and see my family, and I am eager to get back to the studio and work on finishing my album,” Monae said. “I stopped touring so I could finish the album. Actually, I plan on releasing two albums next year.”

She didn’t reveal any of the juicy details of her coming work, but she’s Monae. Her work is good.

She confirmed, “84.799 percent of the writing is done.”

As far as the release dates, she has some in mind, but isn’t ready to tell the world.

“I will release them according to my soul clock; so I reserve the right to change that,” she confided. “But I will try to stick to the scheduled release dates, which I know but can’t say. I will be thinking about Kansas City and all the people here who have supported me as I continue to write songs that empower, encourage and make you dance.”

Regardless of when it comes out, there’s no doubt that Miss Monae won’t show out for her fans and be committed to her craft.
