Published Oct 10, 2013As our current Exclaim! cover star continues to bask in the glow of her Electric Lady, Janelle Monáe has shared a video for her Miguel team-up "PrimeTime."
Down below, you can get in on the smoky clip as the pair get all Blade Runner on us. And just to help you out a bit with the video's concept, we've been provided with the following statement:
'PrimeTime' is a love story based on 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. 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.
