One of 2010's most exciting singles, "Tightrope" firmly established R&B/hip hop singer Janelle Monáe as a force to be reckoned with. The song is a fabulous musical adventure, walking a (sorry) tightrope between funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop, and is something quite unique. Her voice is golden too, and the accompanying music video is not bad at all. This is the stuff that dreams are made of, if you ask me.
