We commend artists like Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu for staying true to their soulful sound and not compromising their integrity to be considered mainstream. Monae’s latest video is a dynamic display of femininity and power as the “Tight Rope” singer dons her signature uniform while speaking to today’s sociological problems. Erykah Badu (“Badula Oblongata”) is scintillating in tribal makeup and big ash colored hair.
The Alan Ferguson-directed visuals are centered around Monae and Badu, who were frozen to preserve their intellectual influence. Monae’s dancing is just one of the highlights. Between Monae’s fringe shoulder pads and Badu’s fierce ensembles, we can’t choose one aspect of “Q.U.E.E.N” as our favorite! It’s all great!
“Q.U.E.E.N’s” they are called and they should be treated as such! Hit the play button, on this extraordinary video, below:
