Janelle Monae Releases Video for Miguel-Assisted “Primetime”


Atlantic Records

Shortly after asking if her fans were ready, Janelle Monae has released the full-length video of her new single, “Primetime,” featuring Miguel.

In the Blade Runner-inspired visual, Monae depicts her alter-ego named Cindi Mayweather, who falls in love Joey Vice — played by Miguel — inside the Electric Sheep nightclub. After the pair exit the club, their on-screen chemistry heats up as they go for a late-night stroll in the metropolis known as Slop City.

“The new ‘primetime’ emotion picture is one of my fav videos of all Time,” Monae tweeted of her Alan Ferguson-directed clip.

Their infectious duet is off Janelle’s critically acclaimed album, The Electric Lady, available in stores now.

In other Janelle news, she will be the musical guest on the October 26 edition of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Ed Norton.
