Janelle Monáe ft. Erykah Badu - "Q.U.E.E.N"

What do you get if you mix pop-feminism, Janelle Monáe and Erykah Badu?

Answer: the hyper-stylish new video from Monáe, the soul-funk pioneer who has teamed up with Badu to twerk her signature swagger for the track "Q.U.E.E.N".

Directed by Alan Ferguson (Solange's boyf), the vid sees the pair in a living museum seriously getting their twerk on, while reminding us about female equality and how to love oneself - "Am I a freak for getting down?" Janelle asks in the chorus - that would be a 'no' from me. 

I love that the clear message coming across in this video is that as women, we should continue to question and defy the negative labels society has placed on us and strive for equality among the sexes. 
But enough feminist fist pumping for now, watch the video below, and look out for quite possibly the best chair dancing I've ever seen. Or to put it another way, FIERCE!
