Janelle Monae “Cold War” Video

Janelle Monae has just released the video for “Cold War,” the latest single to be taken from her ArchAndroid album. The singer leaves behind the slickness of her previous videos and instead goes for the stripped down, albeit PG Rated, vibe of D’Angelo’s infamously sexy “Untitled” video. Directed by Wendy Moragn, the “War” clip truly captures Janelle’s model-like essence and according to the singer, is her most intimate and personal video to date.

  5. I cried the first time I heard this song. It’s the song of the Century.

  6. I got her CD after seeing her music video Tight Rope and seeing her tribute to Prince at the BET awards. I had no idea who she was. Her CD is very nice and she is refreshing.

  7. This song grabbed me in the first 10 seconds. I feel like there’s something missing from the video.

  8. She truly is a music Genius, Too bad there isn’t enough people educated musically To recognize the Talent that she is, I will forever support her.

  9. Yes I wanted to cry to watching it but had to hold myself together being that I’m at work. I love Janelle. Her, Oprah, and Michelle Obama have to be my 3 favorite people! Janelle speaks to the truth of this world. And she has fun doing it. How can anyone NOT love it??? Janelle personifies creative brilliance! Keep rocking out Ms. Monae and watch me tip right witcha! 😉

  10. Janelle Monae is a musical genius, with a burst of energy, elegance, and substance to last forever! I love her and her music and her message. As you all could see this video was so personal for her…she is differet, as we all are and society wants us to fit a certain descroption especially when ur in the media. Well Janelle Monae represents so much more, and opposition to that because she is not afraid to be herself, love herself! Android Power!!

  11. This girl is bad…her musical influences, awesome, how well she knows music…they could easily make 6 or 7 music videos from this cd…easily… “Dance or Die”…”Faster”…”Oh, Maker”…love this song/video…

    Go Janelle!!!

  12. “…i was made to believe there was something wrong with me; and it breaks my heart…”

    LOVE
