Janelle Monae has outdone herself in her new video "PrimeTime" featuring Miguel!
Here is the description of what is taking place in the video:
PrimeTime is a love story based on the early adventures of Cindi Mayweather (Janelle Monáe) and her first love Joey Vice (Miguel.) The Emotion Picture gives a glimpse at Cindi's humble beginnings as a "cyber-server" at the Electric Sheep nightclub, a syn bar serving high-class "show droids" to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City. Incidentally, the innovative cybersoul music played at the club directly impacted Cindi, and she began singing and performing her own innovative compositions a short time after quitting this assignment. In addition, Cindi became determined to change the public perception of what an electric lady could be, dream and aspire to after working in the dismal conditions at the club.
Interesting. The song is sexual...we all get that. The video however, shows a Cindi working at a seedy place and wanting to escape with Joey. No skirt hiking. No banging against the wall. Aside from a brush against the face and holding hands, it doesn't go further. In the song, you know where it is heading. If you want to hike up her skirt and bang your girl against the wall while the song is played, go right ahead. The vision of what Janelle is laying down doesn't take it that way as again, the music implies it.
Digging it. Big time! Kudos and LOVE to Janelle.
Diagnosis: So who will be playing Anthony?
