Crisp N' Fresh: Janelle Does Some Fancy Footwork In 'Tightrope' Visual

Friday, April 2, 2010

So yeah, I'm late, but let's be honest, you don't really have to push play to know what Janelle Monae has done for the visual of zippy single, "Tightrope". Okay, maybe you should push play just to see a music video that incorporates some frantic and fancy saddle shoe footwork, as well as some trippy surrealism elements and touches of Harry Potter Prisoner of Azkaban-esque details. Strangely, Janelle doesn't do the sista from another planet deal as no robotical elements are present, but with OutKast's Big Boi in tow, they deliver one hell of a dance party in an asylum, of all places.

In less than a week, we've had three visually appeasing videos (Erykah's, Kelis' and this one), so that sadly means we've gotten the quota for creative music videos done for the year. I'm just kidding.

The ArchAndroid drops in stores May 18th.
