Janelle Monae - Tightrope (new video!)

Little known fact: Janelle Monae was probably somewhere between the 3rd to 7th artist I ever chose to feature back when I started the site. With a dose of Motown and a splash of other-worldly awesomeness, the Grammy-nominated singer has deservedly found herself a spot in Beastonia many a time before. And today, we roll on with our favorite ArchAndroid and her new video.

Monae's debut EPs, which came in the shape and titles of various Metropolis: Chases, were a mix of futuristic retro radness, with the ever-stylish gal donning the moniker of Cindi Mayweather, the album's protagonistic maven.

 

Now, with the May 18 release of her freshman full-length, fittingly dubbed The Arch Android, Janelle jumps back in time to hit us with an outerspacey ride of a wild time. She's collaborated with Big Boi on lead single, Tightrope, and she's just released the visuals to the dancey feel-good vibes of the album cut.

 

Watch her get tip-toe-ingly terrific in the video below.
