So in case you haven’t heard…word on the street is that Janelle Monae’s Suite I of IV: The Chase is sold out. Yup that’s right. We have sold over 10,000 copies in 2 months yall or yowll as Miss Monae’s Kansas City, Kansas accent sometimes dictates. It has taken alot of support from everyone invoved in the WAS/Janelle Monae movement to accomplish such a feat. Everyone in the blogosphere that read this blog or attend our performances have been the reason that it has happened. You have decided to purchase the album and support a magical art versus downloading the bootleg or at least you bought a copy after grabbing the bootleg (that’s love). The next pressings will ship immediately. We want to ensure that everyone that wants a copy gets it.
I think that this achievement is another reflection of the music industry’s changing business model. Innovative artists such Janelle Monae have been finding efficient and effective means of distributing their artistic energy to fans. And it is working. I can’t wait for the industry to adjust to the new model so that the legions of artists such as Deep Cotton, Proton, Scar, Yelawolf and others can release their music in a fantastic way.

Its an exciting time and a challenging one. Those that keep their fans in their forethoughts will absolutely win the game. Thats what it always comes down to. You take care of those that take care of you and they will ensure your ascension. 10,000 units sold is evident of that. Janelle Monae & Wondaland Arts Society will see to that. We are you and you are us. So lets keep making this thing happen.
