If you have been keeping up with Janelle Monae, you probably know all about her fictional sci-fi world of Metropolis.

If you don't know, let's give you a brief recap.

Metropolis is this famous made up world created by Monae that is taken over by androids and humans. In this world, Janelle Monae has an alter ego (Sort of like Nicki Minaj with her alter egos, you know?) and she's Cindi Mayweather. Mayweather falls in love with a human (surprise, surprise). Monae could talk for hours on end about sci-fi, fiction, time travel, etc. as well as sing her powerful hit songs.

For example:

"Population 10 zillion and six/ Where signs say, 'Welcome to the Star Core Metropolis' Me, I live on the wired side of town/ Reaching and searching for a space called paradise found."

OKAY. Now that you have a brief understanding on Janelle Monae’s Metropolis. We wanted to know who would help Monae or better yet, Cindi Mayweather rule Metropolis. We thought of the crazy idea to appoint some compelling individuals to help Cindi Mayweather.

Beyonce as Minister of Justice

Beyonce fights for what she believes in and stands for it. In a world where everyone is beyond the “norm,” Beyonce embraces that and she will fight for what is right for Metropolis.

Big Boi as Minister of Foreign Affairs

Big Boi has never been afraid to step out of a normal situation and deal with unfamiliar beings. (The guy is an ATLien!) He has been able to take the ATLiens into the hostile radio stations and clubs in the East during the 90s. His ability to be an outcast while still being able to relate to the masses are assets that will aid him in hostile situations with nearby worlds.

Solange as Minister of Trade

Whether it’s trading a human for an android or trading spaceships, Solange’s expertise on sharing the spotlight with her mega star sister and collaborating with others is proof that she knows how to make a judgment on what is best for others.

John Legend as Minister of Agriculture

The Ivy League graduate has the ability to walk in any circle, catch him with Rick Ross then later with the first Lady of the United States. Legend’s understanding of the 99% while still being able to deal with the exclusive 1% helps him advise of how to best provide nourishment for the Metroplis.

Add the ability that John’s nourishing vocals have the power to have agriculture rise at the poignant times of need.

Erykah Badu as the Minister of Defense.

Badu’s intoxicating green eyes omit love rays. She has an army of men who do her bidding and wear knitted hats as Common did. (Sorry Common.)
