While the songstress touches on bisexuality topic in ‘Make Me Feel’ clip, she spits line about the power of women in ‘Django Jane’ visuals.
She’s back! Janelle Monae makes a comeback to the music industry by releasing two new singles off her upcoming third studio album “Dirty Computer”. The release of the singles was accompanied by their music videos.
The first music video, “Make Me Feel”, features the songstress channeling queer icon Prince. Janelle touches on bisexuality topic in the clip as one of the scenes finds her moving between a man and a woman, who is played by her rumored girlfriend Tessa Thompson. “It’s like I’m powerful with a little bit of tender/ An emotional, sexual bender,” she sings.
The second music video, “Django Jane”, finds Janelle sitting on a throne surrounded by an army of fierce female dancers. In the clip, the 32-year-old singer/actress spits lines about the power of women and her past accomplishment. “Remember when they used to say I look too man-ish/ Black girl magic; y’all can’t stand it,” she raps. “Y’all can’t ban it, made it out like a bandit.”
Both music videos were well received by people, with many praising her for touching on bisexuality topic in “Make Me Feel” visuals. One fan took to the comment section to write, “My bisexual heart is cheesing right now. Nothing but the best from my android queen.”
“Dirty Computer” is set to be released on February 27, marking her first album in five years. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Janelle suggested that the effort was something that she had been dying to make despite her fear over how it will be received.
“I’m going to be 100 percent honest, I’m scared. I’m actually terrified,” she told the radio DJ. “It’s such an honest body of work and I don’t know how people are going to react to it, Zane. I really, I don’t know. Just the thought of it is kind of freaking me out a little bit, but I feel like it’s something that I need to do. It’s something that I always knew I needed to do and it’s going to happen.”
