Janelle Monae & Miguel Present ‘Primetime’

October 10, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

Janelle Monae is continuing to spoil us when it comes to the release of her studio album The Electric Lady. As if the great arrangements, killer vocals and infectious production on every track wasn’t enough, the great entertainer has released a visual to follow Wednesday’s teaser.

Providing a visual for single ‘Primetime’ featuring Mr Kaleidoscope Dream himself, Janelle Monae and Miguel can be heard on the love related ballad, harmonising their way through a soulful duet in perfect unison.

If the 20 second teaser is anything to go by, the duo certainly embody their 50s style, as they pay ode to leather, quiffed hair and the love story of two amongst a scenic background, as they give one of our favourite tracks a powerful visual.

“The new ‘Primetime’ emotion picture is one of my fav videos of all time. Can’t wait to show you… directed by Alan Ferguson,” she says of her new project.

Also announcing The Electric Lady tour, Janelle kicks off at the suitably titled Electric Factory in Philadelphia October 13th, ending the 21 stop tour in Atlanta, Georgia after stops in Florida, Tennesse, Texas, California and more. Have you got your tickets?
