Stop what you are doing right now and watch Janelle Monae’s new video, “Electric Lady.”
Seriously. STOP. AND. Watch.
And you agree that Janelle looks like a mocha goddess in this video, yes?
Now, I’ve always been a Janelle fan, and the first time I saw her perform live, I practically fell in love.
But I can’t take her in this video. It’s too much. She’s too fly. It’s not fair to be that Beautifully Brown. She’s serving Black college cuteness, and giving us throwback style with her fab fro’ and varsity crop jacket (and showing off that banging body, might I add). Need I say more? She’s…just…everything.
Peep the video, and get ready to end your day at work on a bang.
Oh, and I’m here for the cameos from T-Boz, Estelle, Monica, choreographer Fatima Robinson, Esperanza Spalding…I just love it!
