Janelle Monae Assembles 'Electric Lady' All-Stars For New Video
Monica, TLC's T-Boz, Estelle, Kimbra & Esperanza Spalding -- not to mention T.I. -- pop up in Monae's latest.
We all know Janelle Monae is an "Electric Lady," but in the just-released video for her latest album's title track, she's paying tribute to all the Electric Ladies that came before her.
In the upbeat visual (would you expect anything less from the nonstop entertainer?), Monae is at a party for the Electro Phi Betas sorority. She strays from her typical look in the video, leaving her black-and-white duds and updo behind for a colorful midriff-baring outfit and wild hair. A wall of Electro Phi Beta alumnae -- TLC's T-Boz, Estelle, Esperanza Spalding, Monica and Kimbra -- steal the video, along with a dancing cameo from T.I.
