Janelle Monáe and Miguel need to get a room.
After about five seconds of listening to our favorite CoverGirl, Janelle Monáe, and Miguel’s steamy The Electric Lady collaboration, “Primetime,” we had a strong feeling that its accompanying video would be something you’d wanna watch in private. (Or at least with your boyfriend lurking nearby, ready to “hang out,” if y’all know what I mean.)
Anyway, the official “Primetime” video has just dropped, and, just as we guessed, Janelle and Miguel (#rhyming!) have some seriously palpable chemistry. If we could label this video “NSFW due to immense sexual tension,” we would.
Watch Janelle Monáe’s “Primetime” video featuring Miguel after the jump.
Directed by Alan Ferguson, “Primetime” tells the story of Janelle’s alter ego, Cindi Mayweather, a musically gifted android lady, and Joey Vice (played by Miguel), who serves as Cindi’s first big-time love.
Cindi spends nights working as a server at the Electric Sheep nightclub, which, according to team Janelle, is “a syn bar serving high-class ’show droids’ to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City.” Oohhh, #SciFi.
After a fight with a patron, Cindi (aka, Janelle) quits and dramatically runs out of the bar. And just as we were pretty positive Janelle was set to stuff her droid face with some I-just-got-fired Ben & Jerry’s, Miguel shows up just in time to sweep her off her feet!
Finally together, “Joey” and “Cindi” spend the rest of the night dancing at clubs, making puppy eyes at each other, and then heading back to Miguel’s place to (presumably) make sweet cyber-droid love. (We’ll leave it up to you to figure out what that actually means.)
