Video: Janelle Monáe feat. Miguel – ‘Primetime’



Love is in the future for Janelle Monáe and Miguel in the futuristic music video for “Primetime.” The romantic duet, lifted off Monáe’s new album ‘The Electric Lady,’ is visualized through a sci-fi themed story of love, featuring the early adventures of Cindi Mayweather (Janelle Monáe) and her first love Joey Vice (Miguel.)

“The Emotion Picture gives a glimpse at Cindi’s humble beginnings as a “cyber-server” at the Electric Sheep nightclub, a syn bar serving high-class “show droids” to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City,” explains Monáe. “Incidentally, the innovative cybersoul music played at the club directly impacted Cindi, and she began singing and performing her own innovative compositions a short time after quitting this assignment.”

“In addition, Cindi became determined to change the public perception of what an electric lady could be, dream and aspire to after working in the dismal conditions at the club.”

Watch the singers fall in love now!

    It’s s future video but, yet it has this “Retro” feel to also… Like the 60s/70s collided with the year 2100. LOL! Sure hope the (Near) future display’s this much soul.
