VIDEO FAB: Janelle Monae's "Q.U.E.E.N." Featuring Erykah Badu

Janelle Monae's "Q.U.E.E.N." video featuring Erykah Badu premiered tonight.  Watch the visual inside....

 

In her funky Alan Ferguson-directed clip for "Q.U.E.E.N.", hipster artist Janelle Monae teams with Erykah Badu aka Badoula Oblongata where the two star as a museum exhibit comes to life. 

Instead of her predictable black-and-white tuxedo, Janelle throws on some Givenchy heels and shows off her shapely figure while claiming her QUEEN-status.  She talked to Rap-Up about working with Erykah and revealed their close friendship.

“I just love her. We call each other twins. I talk to her on the phone at least three or four times a week. It was really inspired by our private conversation, dialogue that she and I have and continue to have. … She’s a strong woman, she’s an electric lady, she’s somebody that I look up to.”

"Q.U.E.E.N" will appear on Janelle’s album The Electric Lady, dropping this summer.

It's been a while i've seen a post full of positive comments. It's refreshing, I'm the era of Eryka Badu, Janelle Monae will be fine as log as she does not conform to the industry or dumb it down for society.

Janelle is uber sexy but

Janelle is uber sexy but extremely classy. Usually don't the see those 2 traits in women her age. Not a fan of the song but I like what this girl stands for. Oh and Ms BADU is a goddess.

Janelle looks like a younger

Janelle looks like a younger cuter version of Anita Baker. I'm not 100% sure about her talent though, something about her just does'nt sit right with me, I actually enjoyed Erykah Badu's part the best. I'm just not an Janelle Monae Fan.
