Janelle Monáe is an attractive lady. I mention this only because her video for Cold War pretty much rides on this fact. Its a close-up on her lipsyncing the song, the second single from The ArchAndroid. So hopefully you like her face; youll be seeing a lot of it.
“[The video] deals with a psychosis – you’re in my mind and you get a chance to understand Metropolis, where it all stemmed [from] and my thoughts, she told Rap-Up.com in March. It’s very psychedelic and trippy.”
Perhaps the recession caught up with her between then and now, because this low-budget clip is none of those things. Its an intimate approach that should have been saved for a ballad. This isnt DAngelo. Such a high-energy track deserved a video to match (preferably featuring her shit-hot dance moves). See if you agree below, then catch her on tour with Of Montreal this fall.
