Joshua Lerner has bow tie envy. Five minutes into the video for Janelle Monae’s new single, “Q.U.E.E.N.,” there is a cut to a man in a tuxedo clacking out a repeated line on a typewriter: “We will create and destroy ten art movements in ten years.” Like the rest of the song and video, this flash of thematic content is both mystifying and enticing. Monae’s work creates a world in which every character, color scheme, and costume may relay a theme or plot point to her ongoing Wondaland saga. Which art movements? Why ten? Wait, [...]

Was diggin' the homie, M-Rock 's Daft Punk refix . This remix of the Badu/Janelle Monae track that dropped a while back feels a little tepid to me tbh however. Disagree? Let me know in the comments.... [ via ]
The democratization of music production over the past decade didn't come without casualties. Fruity Loops, now known as FL Studio, stood at the forefront of bringing the studio to your room. It also became the scapegoat of many purists who swear the DAW ruined genres based around loops: namely rap. Call me crazy but the people behind the program didn't change its name to "FL Studio" just because it sounds cool. Everyone's entitled to their opinion on the matter. At the same time one's skill, imagination and output trumps whatever instrument he or she uses [...]
The two powerhouses came together and came up with a great concept, but the song is just falling flat on its stupid face. The video is also cute although it looks like something Beyonce would do. Anyway, here it is. Filed under: Beats , Clip , Yankee Panky

Following the release of the single, "Q.U.E.E.N" off the upcoming album, The Electric Lady , Janelle Monáe has created a work of art in the official music video for the as-to-be-expected funky track. Set in a museum where statuesque musicians, singers, and dancers alike are brought to life by music (WOAH, deep) and heavy on the black, white, and red accents, "Q.U.E.EN" becomes a visual jam as well as an auditory one. And of course, Janelle Monáe dons her signature suit and tie complete with tassels, fringe, and Johnny Bravo 'do. Watch out for Erykah Badu who is [...]

Watch the ultra sleek video for Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu's 'Q.U.E.E.N.'
La semana pasada os presentábamos el primer tema de "The Electric Lady" , el nuevo LP de Janelle Monáe , un tema excelente que desde hoy tienen un videoclip igual de bueno, disfruta de “Q.U.E.E.N.” .
Janelle Monae 's video for "Q.U.E.E.N." is actually the best. It begins in a frozen bright-white dystopia of an art gallery featuring Erykah Badu as "Badoula Oblongata" and a ceramic skull who plays vinyl with a single gold fang - then "Q.U.E.E.N." drops with all its Prince-esque guitar heat, and in come the zombies on guitar, the 602s hotties and the standard poodle who just got its hair did. It's a pop-art marvel as well as an overt fuck-you to all those shade-throwers out there: Monáe chair-twerks, tossing her jacket's fringe as she sings "They call us dirty cause we [...]
Janelle Monae is getting ready to release a new record in 2013, "Electric Lady," and fear not— she's still got the awesome signature haircut. Erykah Badu, who collaborated with her on the new single "Q.U.E.E.N," still has her own awesome signature haircut. They combine forces in the new video to form a kind of super-awesome aesthetic explosion of hair, costume and set design in an artsy clip about a futuristic depiction of mod dancing. Or something—just watch it.
Janelle Monae's always had an eye for great videos - here's her next one, for her first Electric Lady single "Q.U.E.E.N.," which features some help from Erykah Badu . We dig the dystopian sci-fi theme and monochromatic visuals with just a touch of red. Check it out. Read more articles like " Video: Janelle Monae + Erykah Badu - "Q.U.E.E.N."

A couple of weeks ago the funky-hip-hop-soul sister Janelle Monáe dropped the first cut from her new album The Electric Lady , and today she's given us the futuristically retro video for "Q.U.E.E.N." ft. Erykah Badu . Live exhibits in a museum, as soon as someone puts on a white piece of wax everyone comes to life, and a funky-jazz party kicks off, including a predictably-off-the-wall Erykah Badu. The Electric Lady will [...]
Janelle Monáe drops some stellar visuals for her funky, strange, and eccentric new single, "Q.U.E.E.N.," which has me absolutely psyched to hear her new full-length when it drops. Enjoy!
