Perhaps my favorite single of the year so far and by far the coolest music video I've seen in a while. There is something enchanting about alt-indie black subculture.
It's a pity that people like Nikki Minaj and Rhianna exist and get all the exposure when little girls could get exposed to Janelle Monáe instead. She's an inspiring role model.
She's legit too: has done songs with people like Of Montreal and Beirut.
I really like her stuff. Have you ever seen the video for Tightrope? I'll post it up above.
