New Music: Janelle Monae’s Q.U.E.E.N. Feat Erykah Badu

New Music: Janelle Monae’s Q.U.E.E.N. Feat Erykah Badu

Janelle Monae’s  Q.U.E.E.N. featuring Erykah Badu

 In her funky Alan Ferguson-directed clip for “Q.U.E.E.N.”, hipster artist Janelle Monae teams with Erykah Badu aka Badoula Oblongata where the two star as a museum exhibit comes to life. 

Instead of her predictable black-and-white tuxedo, Janelle throws on some Givenchy heels and shows off her shapely figure while claiming her QUEEN-status.  She talked to Rap-Up about working with Erykah and revealed their close friendship.

“I just love her. We call each other twins. I talk to her on the phone at least three or four times a week. It was really inspired by our private conversation, dialogue that she and I have and continue to have. … She’s a strong woman, she’s an electric lady, she’s somebody that I look up to.”

“Q.U.E.E.N” will appear on Janelle’s album The Electric Lady, dropping this summer.
