*Janelle Monae gathered up some high-powered women to make cameos in a sorority-themed video for her song, “Electric Lady.”
The singer enhances her usual black-and-white get-up with a red midriff-baring shirt. Also, her usual restrained pompadour is now wild and free.
The narrative has Monae at a party for the Electro Phi Betas sorority. A wall of Electro Phi Beta alumnae — TLC’s T-Boz, Estelle, Esperanza Spalding, Monica and Kimbra — come to life as background singers during the party.
And look out for a dancing cameo from T.I. toward the end.
