Janelle Monae paid a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday (July 20) to promote her latest album, Dirty Computer, and current North American tour.

During her visit to the show, Monae sat down with Colbert to discuss everything from love of science fiction to partying alongside the Late Show host at a White House event hosted by President Barack Obama.

"There is nobody that knows how to party like my favorite president, Barack Obama," Monae said to cheers from the audience.

Colbert also shared his memories of the party, reminiscing about how Ellen DeGeneres pushed him onto the dance floor while Usher was performing. Colbert and Monae shared a brief encounter during the event, when the singer placed her hat onto Colbert's head while the two let loose on the dance floor.

"I gave you the energy you needed to win that night, and I think you won," Monae joked to Colbert.

Following the 10-minute sit-down with Colbert, where she also discussed getting some solid advice from Stevie Wonder before jumping onto Colbert's desk to boogie down, Monae gave a highly energetic performance of her politically-charged song "Americans."
