Look at These New Janelle Monáe Videos


I mean seriously, just look at them.

Here’s the clip for “Make Me Feel,” in which Monáe decides that the only way to top the absolute banger of a Prince riff she’s put on wax is to make the greatest Robert Palmer video he never made. Maybe there’s been a sexier clip lately, but we’re too busy sweating to think of one:
