Spin's William Goodman reports from a listening party held in New York for Janelle Monae's upcoming album "The ArchAndroid."

Diddy, on hand via webcam from Paris, spoke glowingly about Monae. "Janelle is my most artistic signing yet," he said. "She's not afraid to dream. I'm known for my hype, but her music speaks for itself."

"Suite II Overture" and "Mushrooms and Roses" were two of the songs played during the evening.
