We Love Janelle Monae’s Feet!


Vibe / March 31, 2010

Janelle Monae and Big Boi have been down for a minute now, first collaborating on the Got Purp? Vol. 2 album back in 2005. Now, after lending her talents to Big Boi on two separate occasions (Got Purp and Idlewild), Monae is getting the favor returned as Sir Lucious Leftfoot hops on “Tightrope,” from Janelle’s upcoming The Arch Android project. The above Wendy Morgan-directed video compliments the uptempo, funky feel of the song, as Monae and Co. bust a move while looking fly and classy in some black tie attire. Big Boi may not be doing much dancing, but he sure breaks it down on the mic. —Adam Fleischer
