VIDEO: Janelle Monae ft Big Boi – Tightrope
by Winston "Stone" Ford
As most of y’all know, we’ve been fans of Ms. Janelle Monae from the jump. We’ve personally witnessed her evolution from her appearance on the Got Purp compilation way back in 2005, to her signing to Bad Boy last year. It’ s been a long hard road for Monae, and the path to mainstream acceptance yeilds even more challenges.
But forget that. Let’s sit back and bask in her latest video for Tightrope, which just dropped today. Let’s wait with anticipation until her debut album, The ArchAndroid drops in May. And let’s all support Ms. Monae, as she pushes music forward.
And let’s hope to God that the “Tightrope” becomes the latest dance craze.
