The immensely talented Janelle Monae has teamed up with car makers Kia, to join the Kia Soul Collective project. Monae just release this song, "Come Alive (The War of The Roses)" from the project. The Kia Soul Collective is made up of a group of today's "hotest artists" hand-picked to help promote the Kia Soul. I could care less who she's partnering with, as long as it leads to more good music like this. Watch the making of this song in the clip above. Monae's full-length debut is rumored to drop in early 2010.
