i think i’ve mentioned her here before. janelle monae is an artist on p.diddy’s label but dont let that deter you from exploring her music. she is an amazing artist. innovator. entertainer. you may have seen her on the BET awards in the tribute group performances to Prince. she is fascinating and a refreshing addition to the music scene.
but here is her newest single, cold war.
it reminds me of the sinead o’connor video ‘nothing compares to you’ [music fact: the song is actually a cover. originally written and performed by prince] in that its just a close up of her face and captures the emotion of the song as shown in her face. beautifully done i might add.
