Janelle Monáe - "Dance Apocalyptic"

janelle monae

Any of Janelle Monae's songs could probably be titled "Dance Apocalyptic," given her taste for steampunk-y fashions, dystopian videos, and postmodern genre-mashing, but her latest single from The Electric Lady officially bears the name. We're pretty sure we'd want to hang out with Monae in the event of the end of the world - she thanks her listeners for "dancing til the end," all easy speakeasy sass and a sexy, fun funk vibe. The track comes with a video teaser, too, in which we get a few glimpses of Monae and her all-female band. The video's out July 2, the record on September 10 - stay tuned.
