The most creative, frenetic, insane, imaginative, beautiful, genius video I think I’ve ever seen.
I think she just became my favourite artist today off the back of it. At the very least, she replaces Erykah Badu as the artist I cannot wait to argue with my crunk-addicted sister over.
If you don’t know about Janelle, you need to get to knowing already. A few reasons:
- Barack Obama is a fan…
- … as are two of my all-time favourite artists: Erykah Badu & Prince
- Personally signed by Diddy to Bad Boy Records: an interesting move for a genuine artist.
- Outkast affiliate, signed at a point by Big Boi, later featuring on Idlewild and in their Morris Brown video.
- Acts too, and based on her creativity and the sheer level of performance she injects into her live sets and videos, I reckon she’ll be pretty well known for it one day.
Oh, & besides Big Boi’s cameo in the video as Sir Luscious Leftfoot, I’m pretty sure that guitarist is Andre 3000…
Thanks Amelia for putting me onto this.
