Janelle Monáe, the always innovative songwriter and singer, has released a new video for her song off of The ArchAndroid, "Cold War." It features a close up, sometimes out of focus image of Monáe lip syncing the entire song in not just one take, but in her first take. It's an emotionally charged experience straight from the black box auditorium at the Palace of the Dogs insane asylum.
B.o.B and Lupe Fiasco, who toured together this last year, have teamed up with Janelle Monae on this chilled out, funky-with-a-hint-of-metal version of "Tightrope." According to B.o.B himself, this is "one of the best collaborations of the year." If you missed Janelle's newest album, The ArchAndroid, make sure to grab yourself a copy.
