Wow, two of my favourite super-stylish songstresses on one track. Not only a treat for your earholes, but also for your eyes as these ladies and this video are very, very stylish. In some sort of dream-team scenario, Janelle Monáe teams up with Erykah Badu on this track ‘Q.U.E.E.N’.
Monáe is a Kansas born musician, composer and record producer. This multi-talented woman is also known for her signature suited style. In everything that she does, she is utterly unique and so I guess it was only a matter of time until she was drawn to working with the equally innovative Erykah Badu, who incidentally rocked one of my favourite looks at the recent Met Gala ball. I first saw Badu perform in the late 90’s. Her sound, her style and her approach was captivating and ground breaking then as it is now.
Just hang on in there past the intro section of this video and enjoy the way the track dips in and out of pace and energy, leaving you at the end feeling like you’ve just had your eardrums completely refurbed.
