VIDEO: Janelle Monåe | The Return of Artistry in R&B, Soul, & Hip Hop
Janelle Monae has been on the scene for a brief minute. Clearly, she’s here to stay!
Monae’s style is equivalent to an equinoctial point. In other words, she’s distinctive in fashion, beauty, and music and there’s no one like her. If so, they too are very rare, appearing infrequently throughout a life’s cycle of entertainment, and soon to disappear.
With hits like Sincerely, Jane – Lettin Go – Tight Rope- and a list of others, Monae has demonstrated her creative skill by creating soothing yet jumpy musical sound with an elastic voice. Perceived as a woman of positive-unique-style, elevating the entertainment industry, Monae is back at it again with her new video for Q.U.E.E.N. featuring the soulful Erykah Badu.
The video mimics a futuristic museum where legendary rebels from throughout history have been frozen in suspended animation”. Monae plays the notorious leader and as her dangerous accomplice, Badoula Oblongata. Together, they launch Project Q.U.E.E.N., A musical lessons program in the 21st century.
Folks have stated that this creative style of song and entertainment has been obsolete since the hiatus of Missy MISDEMEANOR Elliot… I’d agree!
Congratulations to Janelle Monae for re-implementing Artistry in R&B, Soul, & Hip Hop! May your creative abilities spark life into your subordinates in entertainment. As you said best, keep leading like Harriet Tubman, for you are the Moses of your people in the 21st century of creative music.
