A great single deserves a great video, and such is the case for Janelle Monáe’s Q.U.E..E.N. featuring Erykah Badu. It’s a grandiose museum exhibit in which a striped-out Monáe dances with lookalikes, while Badu walks the dog. Beyoncé’s influence is felt throughout, but Badu definitely brought the weird.
“Q.U.E.E.N.” is the first single of Monáes long-awaited sophomore album The Electric Lady.
