Janelle Monáe is coming y’all!
After taking a step back from music for a bit to focus on her acting career, she’s starred in critically-lauded films like Moonlight and Hidden Figures, the multi-talented superstar returns to the music side of things with Dirty Computer, an “emotion picture” defined as a new album and accompanying film.
In the teaser clip, Janelle stars alongside Westworld star Tessa Thompson in the futuristic film, which is set to air ahead of Black Panther screenings in select theaters this weekend (MAYJAH). “They drained us of our dirt and all the things that made us special,” says Monáe in the clip. “And then you were lost, sleeping, and you didn’t remember anything at all.”
This marks the third solo LP for the Wondaland boss, her first since 2013’s The Electric Lady. I AM FULLY READY!
