Futuristic low-rider Janelle Monáe is taking a trip through the desert in “PYNK”, her latest of infectious pop jams. Mandu-styled pants flow in the waves of Janelle’s personal rhythm as she leads the dance among infrared-toned scenes. The easy-going nature is, however, a cover for a message more poignant than anticipated – social commentary. Blunt messages caption the dancers’ underwear and are backed by lines of empowerment that build an anthem from hushed tones. She knows exactly who she is and is happy to demonstrate the force that comes with.
“PYNK” is cut from Dirty Computer, which follows her 2012 record Electric Lady, and is out April 27th. Stay tuned and watch below.
