Janelle Monae Premieres 'Dance Apocalyptic' Music Video
The soul singer gives her usual updo a rest and lets her hair down literally in her brand new music video.


Exactly as announced, R'n'B songstress Janelle Monae unveiled the music video for her newly released track "Dance Apocalyptic", the official second single off her forthcoming sophomore studio album "The Electric Lady", on June 2. Just a few days ago, the 27-year-old songbird released a 28-second preview of the track's video along with the full audio track.

In the four-and-a-half-minute visuals directed by Wendy Morgan and Pierre Rouger, fans can see a different looking Monae as she's trading her usual updo for long locks when performing American Bandstand-style with her all-female backing band, dressed in Monae's signature black-and-white look. She even drops a few James Brown-inspired footwork onstage as she dances to the up-tempo track.

Midway through the clip, the performance is abruptly interrupted by a breaking news segment done by a newscaster also portrayed by Monae, reporting on catastrophic events that included earthquakes, fires and even zombie attacks. As the telecast returns to "regular programming," Monae and her band go wild, breaking their musical instruments before driving off with a group of burly bikers.

"Dance Apocalyptic" and the Erykah Badu-assisted "Q.U.E.E.N" are just two of the funky tracks from "The Electric Lady", set to hit stores on September 10. The album serves as the follow-up to Monae's Grammy nominated debut album, "The ArchAndroid", released back in 2010 and includes tracks featuring such artists as the iconic Prince and "Adorn" singer Miguel.
