Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel/Django Jane | Music Video
Five years on from her critically acclaimed last album The Electric Lady, the uncomparable Janelle Monáe returns with two new singles “Make Me Feel” and “Django Jane”, the first set off her upcoming third solo album, Dirty Computer. Both come accompanied with two very striking visuals that will get people talking.
The funky “Make Me Feel” pays overt homage Monáe’s late idol, the great Prince with its vintage vibes. The colorful, fashion-forward video, directed by Alan Ferguson, captures the funk sounds of the 1980’s and the dance revolution. It’s filled with sexual innuendos and sees Monáe at her most raunchiest.
On the flip side, the Andrew Donoho and Chuck Lightning directed “Django Jane” screams ‘Black Girl Magic’. Laced with black women in afrocentric inspired outfits, complete with leather jackets and shades. Looking undoubtedly regal, Janelle Monáe delivers an unapologetic statement, trading vocals for bars as she delivers a protest anthem for women and identity.
Janelle has been in the studio ‘cooking up a storm’ in the form of her “Emotion Picture” Dirty Computer, which will also include a narrative film. The album arrives everywhere April 27.
