It’s hard to stand still when you hear Janelle Monae’s “Electric Lady.” So it’s no wonder that the video for the song, which was released on Wednesday (July 30), is one big dance party.
For the visuals, the singer heads back to school and to a party at her Electro Phi Betas sorority house — and she’s even got a fresh white and black varsity jacket, with her initials embroidered on the left chest, to go with the whole college vibe.
The shindig pops off pretty quickly, with a packed house of party-goers doing some impressive coordinated moves, and Janelle stealing the show with some solo trips to the dance floor, too.
She also has some nice chemistry with dancing partner T.I., who’s just one of a number of cameos in the video, including Estelle, T-Boz, Monica and Esperanza Spalding.
The upbeat jam is off of her second solo album, The Electric Lady, which hit stores last year.
