Preview: Janelle Monae teases “PrimeTime” video w/ Miguel

Janelle Monae & Miguel

A lovers ballad that becomes more beautiful with each play, Janelle Monae is soon to unveil her official video for “PrimeTime” featuring Miguel – but first, a teaser to whet your appetite.

“We’re gonna kind of be experiencing Janelle’s world set in a very Blade Runner-like setting,” Miguel told ETonline of the video. “I happen to play the love interest in the video, so it’s going to be fun and interesting… The set is incredible and I don’t think we’ve ever seen Janelle like this, so it’s exciting.”

From the 20-second preview below it looks like we can anticipate an elegantly shot video with both playful and picturesque qualities – a fitting combination for this talented, creative pair – and they might as well release a lookbook with it because I’ve already seen a bracelet and jacket in there I want to buy…

Grab your copy of Monae’s latest album The Electric Lady on iTunes if you haven’t already done so, and watch a preview of the “PrimeTime” video below – with the full version debuting tomorrow (October 10th).
