This is some Carefree Black Girl-ness that can't and will not be tamed!
I had little interest in sorority life while in undergrad, but Janelle Monáe is making me want to pledge Electro Phi Beta with the fierceness after witnessing the visual for upcoming single, "Electric Lady". Electric Lady, the album, has been out for almost a year (yep, it really has), and since day one I've been waiting for her to give shine to what has been my anthem over the last few months or so.
Well, today is that day, as Monáe has outdone herself (once again) as she makes merry with her fellow sorority sisters and throws a house party to end all house parties complete with an impromptu step show, marching band, and some recognizable guest stars popping up (I see you Esperanza Spalding, Kimbra, T-Boz, Monica, and Estelle, and yes, you too, impostor Erykah Badu). Even Monáe's mama makes an appearance to keep the sisterhood theme alight. So get way down and celebrate the joys of being an electric lady by indulging in this oh so fun visual.
Just two parting questions: Where is the song's guest star Solange and where can I get an Electro Phi Beta jacket?!?
