Janelle Monae has powered up her ‘Dirty Computer.’
The eclectic singer last week announced the set as her upcoming visual album and today premiered its first two videos – ‘Make Me Feel’ and ‘Django Jane.’
The visual for ‘Feel’ (a jam which samples Prince‘s ‘Kiss’) was directed by Alan Ferguson, while the clip for ‘Django’ was helmed by Andrew Donoho and Chuck Lightening.
What are you waiting for? Check out both after the jump…
A double dose of fire!
It’s clear Ms. Monae is going all out for her third swing of the bat.
The visuals were slick, envelope pushing, and tell a compelling story.
‘Make Me Feel’ and ‘Django Jane’ are both lifted from Monae’s new LP ‘Dirty Computer,’ which arrives April 27th.
Loving every minute of it!!!!! The first one is a stone cold tribute to Prince (that shouldve been on the SB) stage and the second one shows her rap side. Bring on the “dirty computer” era, Ms.Monae, im totally here for it!!!!
I love both of these Janelle is an awesome artist and so inovative
My favorite lesbian is BACK!!!
Just realized Solange’s husband directed “Make Me Feel”…love it!
Good! It was not Solange herself. We don’t need another WTF moment like SZA’s video.
Salute to the Queen. Her visuals and music, especially the lyrics are very on point. Janelle is great. Period.
A real queen of talent and artistry (and very diverse).
and yet where still waiting on Christina????
’Make Me Feel’ was ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS ?. So glad to see Janelle switching it up stylistically to keep us engaged in her artistry, that black and white was starting to make her 2 dimensional and was not making people focus just on the music . THIS is how you reference the late great Prince – Justina should take notes AND SIT DOWN. ????
That was FIRE – Thank God for Janelle Monae.
Black Girl Magic all day long!!!
I’ve never listened to Jheanelle before, never been a big fan. But sis snapped on both videos. They were both so good.
I love her. I´ll definitely buy the album no doubt. Such real and unique talent. Only two albums I remember buying last year were Lorde´s and Lana´s “Lust for Life”.
This was so good btw.
See? Someone with style for clothing and visuals… but also the PFUCKING REAL TALENT lol No time for talentless trash just because they are “cool”.
I AM HERE FOR Janelle and her girlfriend in the Make Me Feel VIDEO!
(Oh yall din’t hear that)
Well……The tug and pull from Gender to Gender tells the story. (All though the man is clearly How U Doin)
But Janelle the artist NEVER disappoints me!!
Django Jane…. you are too much like who………. NO ONE!
To think we both sung together in F.L Schlagle acapella chorus!! Alright Janelle!! ??❤️
Both songs and visuals are top notch, Make Me Feel is pure Prince, I love it, and that album cover is epic.
Yay for the real s******! She´s amazing. Visually stunning and so fresh and creative. Her previous album was already top notch including the cover too.
