Music Tuesdays - Tightrope by Janelle Monae

I originally heard about Janelle Monae on Prima Mag's site, which in turn I heard of via our friend C-Mac. This sequence of discover was also responsible for the awesome Uffie song a few weeks back.

Turns out Monae performed this song on Dancing With the Stars last week, so she qualifies as well-known by now. I like the video cause it's really fun, matching the mood of the song well.


  1. Is it just me, or does this song remind you a bit of "List of Demands" by Saul Williams?

    Royce - I also enjoy this video. I'm impressed by the choreography - not cause the dancing is awesome (which, it is), but moreso due to the fact that, while not 100% in-sync, they still dance with the same mannerisms to produce a sense of cohesion (primarily the hallway scenes).

    4/5 Happy Faces!

  2. The dancing reminds me a lot of Run and Tell That from the Hairspray movie as well as Inez Stubbs dance at 1:37
