Video: Tightrope By Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae channels her inner James Brown in the video for her “Tightrope” single. The track features Janelle’s longtime collaborator, Big Boi of Outkast, and is the lead-off single from her long awaited “Archandroid” album. Pick up the new album May 18th and watch Janelle get on the good foot below.
