Soul singer and dancer Janelle Monáe — who danced on David Letterman’s desk during a recent appearance on his late-night CBS-TV show — brings her “Electric Lady Tour” to Seattle Wednesday (with soul singer and producer Roman GianArthur.

The tour follows the release of her most successful album to date, “The Electric Lady,” which made its debut at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 album chart last month. The album — featuring collaborations with Miguel, Solange, Erykah Badu, Esperanza Spalding and Prince, her longtime hero (on the song “Givin Em What They Love” — is an explosive collection of R&B, funk, soul, jazz, disco and “rebel rap.”

Monáe has since received five Soul Train award nominations and landed on the covers of Billboard, Vibe, Elle Canada, The Fly and Vibe Vixen. Her touring show features such songs as “Primetime,” “Dance Apocalyptic,” “Dorothy Dandridge Eyes” (one of several songs on the album paying tribute to Monáe’s female idols), “Q.U.E.E.N.” and the new album’s title song.
