Video: Janelle Monáe f/ B.o.B & Lupe Fiasco – ‘Tightrope (Wondamix)’

Lupe Fiasco, Janelle Monáe, and B.o.B

B.o.B and Lupe Fiasco take a trip to Metropolis with Janelle Monáe in the video for the remix to “Tightrope.” The trio shows off their fancy footwork in the black-and-white clip directed by Lacey Duke.

“Lupe and B.o.B are two of my favorite artists and we have to keep our balance in it all, not getting too high off accolades and praises and not getting too low off opinions and critics,” explained Janelle. “This is what you say to the people who try to oppress you—you tip on ’em!”

    cant stand janelle


  2. LShea

    ^ And? Too original for some folks, I guess. But if she’s not for you then that’s fine. That’s what the song is about, anyway.

    That aside, what’s up with the video for Cold War? I would have thought one would have been released.

  4. Infinte Jay Jay

    im on the same page with LShea. Some people would rather waster time and energy spreading negativity when they should be finding their balance. ha! listen to the words of this song people. and BUY the ArchAndroid.
