Janelle Monae Miguel

The Electric Lady lives up to her name in her latest video “Primetime,” featuring Miguel. Janelle Monae and the R&B crooner play lovers in the video for the sexy song, which has been penned one of the best tracks on her sophomore album.

“‘PrimeTime’ is a love story based on the early adventures of Cindi Mayweather (Janelle Monáe) and her first love Joey Vice (Miguel),” Janelle said of the Alan Ferguson-directed video. “The Emotion Picture gives a glimpse at Cindi’s humble beginnings as a ‘cyber-server’ at the Electric Sheep nightclub, a syn bar serving high-class ‘show droids’ to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City.”

She added, “Incidentally, the innovative cybersoul music played at the club directly impacted Cindi, and she began singing and performing her own innovative compositions a short time after quitting this assignment. In addition, Cindi became determined to change the public perception of what an electric lady could be, dream and aspire to after working in the dismal conditions at the club.”
