Watch: Janelle Monáe’s ‘Electric Lady’ Video Might Be Our New Favorite Of 2014 (So Far)

Now this is how you make an awesome music video.

Former VIBE cover chick Janelle Monáe and her pseudo sorority Electro Phi Beta throw an epic house party up in her ultra-fun new flick for “Electric Lady,” the title track from herawesome 2013 LP.

While Solange is MIA, Estelle, Esperanza Spalding, T.I., Kimbra, Monica, T-Boz and even Janelle’s mother make cameos in Monáe’s “emotion picture,” which features dope dance breakdowns, light sabers, a great rap verse, a marching band that could’ve been plucked right off the yard at Howard University, and an overly conspicuous (but still pretty cool) Samsung product placement (gotta get one of those Gear watches ASAP!).

Head over to VIBE and feel free to drop off your “Yasss”-es in the comments. #blackgirlsrock
