Cementing her place as one of the most respected artists around, Janelle Monáe spoke with Billboard about working with Prince on her new album, The Electric Lady.

"We are great friends, and he is a mentor to us, to me," says Monáe of working with 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. I had a chance to produce an icon. It's not every day that he collaborates. I'm honored and humbled that he trusted me. He is forever my friend, and I am forever indebted. I can't say too much else about it."

She also confirmed that Prince's biggest fan, Miguel, will appear on 'Primetime'.
