706d0079

Teasing fans with a little video clip to hype up the anticipation for her upcoming “Q.U.E.E.N.” video with Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, dressed to impress [as always], keeps her lips sealed and lets the trumpet do the talking.

On a raised platform and stalked by a huge spotlight, Monae’s stance and fashion sense give off an air of James Bond, 007. More licensed to thrill than kill, the backing track that accompanies the singer’s studio makeover and photo shoot is one of a calming nature with an underlining injection of a Marvin Gaye-esque influence. While there’s no sign of Badu in the teaser clip, fans know it’s only a matter of time before Fat Belly Bella shows her face.

Set to debut on BET‘s 106 & Park tomorrow (May 1st), take a look at the teaser trailer below.
