Music video: Janelle Monáe - Dance apocalyptic

Did hell just freeze over? Because Janelle Monae is rocking a crimped weave down past her shoulders and chest popping her titties on a stage not wearing a tuxedo!

It took a while for me to warm to "Q.U.E.E.N", but "Dance apocalyptic" is love on a first listen. If Janelle were to gig with this at UK Summer festivals, she could have a hit with this over here. Let's not forget her gig at Glastonbury which saw The ArchAndroid's "Faster" soar to the top of iTunes charts before her Glasto 2011 performance of the song had even finished.

As hot as Janelle looks in this video, it is sub par by her standards. We've seen this type of video done a million times before. So it would have been nice for her to have given us something a bit more unique and original. If this were your first introduction to Janelle Monáe you wouldn't get any sense of how unique she is parading around in this anybody video.


  1. As a fan of Janelle, I enjoyed the video because it was a different look for her. I respect her artistic integrity consistency and her decision to wear a "uniform", but it was nice to see her embrace her femininity for a change.

  2. I love her look right here. I just wish it was exercised in a better video.
