Janelle Monae’s video for “Cold War”

August 16, 2010 at 10:11 am Leave a comment

A special video treat for Monday! Janelle Monae‘s debut LP The ArchAndroid is by far one of my favorite albums of 2010. The video for the first single, “Tightrope” (which featured Big Boi) is a mesmerizing dance number that takes place in The Palace of the Dogs sanitarium. It can be viewed here. The video for her second single, “Cold War” takes place in that same sanitarium, and was done in only one take.

This video is mesmerizing as well, but for a different reason: it is just three minutes of you watching her (admittedly beautiful) face. While this could get boring, the song is so upbeat and listenable that it doesn’t matter. Enjoy!
