Roots & Rhythm: Janelle Monae ft Erykah Badu - 'Queen'



You know the NIN team are fans of Ms. Janelle Monae - so you know we are BUMPING the new Janelle Monae song featuring Erykah Badu. Who better to collaborate on a song than these two ladies - they are so eclectic yet soulful. Oh yeah, let's not forget these ladies are GORGEOUS! The new song, 'Queen', talks about breaking through the social stereotypes that tend to label some as ghetto, ratchet, freaks, and generally different.
"Even if it makes others uncomfortable
I wanna love who I am
Even if it makes other uncomfortable
I will love who I am"

In the video Erykah and Janelle play come-to-life exhibits in a futuristic funk museum. True to form Janelle rocks her black and white uniform - however she adds cute details to give the viewer some fun looks. I'm loving how Janelle can give you sexy, yet still be covered up! Show 'em how it's done girl! And our girl., Erykah has flipped the script - rocking two cute blond wigs and an retro mod jumpsuits. Go 'head ladies!

Seriously, the video made me like the song much more. You can purchase "Queen" on itunes. The song will be featured on Janelle's new album, Electric Lady, due Fall 2013.
