Recently, the pop star performed the single “Medellín” from her upcoming 14th album “Madame X” with Maluma and five hologram-like avatars of herself at the Billboard Music Awards.

Janelle Monáe also won outstanding musical artist following the release of her Grammy-nominated album “Dirty Computer.”
