Diddy, CEO of Bad Boy Records, officially introduced one of the latest members of the family, Janelle Monae, to music industry insiders with a showcase in New York City Thursday night (Apr. 3rd).

“I’ve been blessed with artists like Jodeci, Notorious B.I.G. and Mary J. Blige in the past, but this artist right here … you’ve just got to see it to believe it. I don’t know if you ever felt the Holy Ghost, but that’s the only feeling you’re going to feel tonight,” Diddy said as he introduced Janelle Monae. “This is possibly the most important signing of my career,” Combs continued. “I thank God for blessing me with an artist like Janelle Monae. Now, are y’all ready to go to church?”

Let’s just hope and pray Diddy doesn’t “forget” about her, like he tends to do with his other artists. Y’all saw what happened with Danity Kane last year.
