Music video: Janelle Monáe featuring Erykah Badu - Q.U.E.E.N



"Q.U.E.E.N" hasn't immediately grabbed me in the way that "Violet stars happy hunting!" and "Many moons" did. I think it's one of her weakest singles. The only part of the song I like is Janelle's rap at the end. Janelle snatched rappers wigs from a distance like Doctor Otto Octavius with that shit. Her flow is TIGHT.

I've always admired how despite having low ass budgets, Janelle's always pulled it out of the bag with her music videos to deliver something which not only suits the song, but visually looks rich. Whether it be the story being told, the setting or just Janelle's swag in general. This video also lays the rumours to rest that Janelle can't look feminine and has never worn a dress. (Run Janelle Monáe's name through Google images and you can easily find pictures of her in dresses). Although I had no idea Janelle had it quite like that with the legs and the booty. She was looking right in dem heels. Those of you who frequent this blog know I am all about females in heels who can spread their legs open and Janelle gave it to me and did so with class. It's nice to see a chick in the game retain it amidst filthy tramps such as Rihanna who posts pictures on Instagram with roll ups and cigars hanging out of her pussy for all to see.

Funk and disco could be making a comeback if Justin Timberlake, Daft Punk and Janelle's solid offerings are anything to go by...
