Music Video Monday: Janelle Monae – “Dance Apocalyptic”

One more reason we can’t wait until ‘The Electric Lady’ comes out

It’s not as sprawling, as ambitious or as tripped out as the brilliant video for “Q.U.E.E.N.,” but Janelle Monáe’s newest clip, “Dance Apocalyptic,” is still pretty great–not least of all for the song’s ridiculously catchy hook.

The video, which features Monáe singing and dancing amid an all-lady band, is actually an excerpt from a short film The Dance Apocalyptic. There are zombies and biblical plagues but Monae doesn’t let that stop her. She’d really, really like to thank you for dancing to the end.

Both “Q.U.E.E.N” and “Dance Apocalyptic” will be on Monáe’s upcoming album, The Electric Lady, which comes out on September 10th.
