We’ve all at one point or another had the joyous pleasure of experiencing a dreaded Greek-life party at least once in our college career. Yeah… none of us are proud of it, either. But, we’ll tell you this much: If Janelle Monáe threw a sorority bash like the one in her video for album-titled track “Electric Lady,” we’d all show up without even batting an eyelash.
The new clip follows the Kansas soulstress, decked out in her “Electro Phi Beta” letters, prancing around what seems to be a pretty thumping house party complete with hypnotizing neon lights, chicks dancing with light-sabers and a full-blown marching band lead by Janelle herself.
Light and fun, the video features an appearances from the likes of Georgia rapper T.I., ”Electro Phi Beta” Emeritus such as Estelle, Esperanza Spalding, T-Boz, Monica and Kimbra, and an opening cameo from the original Electric Lady, Janelle’s mom.
Now all that’s left to ask is why we didn’t get the invite. It must’ve gotten lost in the mail or something.
