Janelle Monáe Breaks Into Dance Frenzy on ’106 & Park’

Janelle Monáe

After premiering her music video for “Q.U.E.E.N.” on “106 & Park,” Janelle Monáe brought the visuals to life on air. She kicked off her stilletos and danced barefoot in her black-and-white suit to her Erykah Badu-assisted single, making her way from the couch into the audience to dance with her bow tie-wearing fans. Even Bow Wow got in on the fun.

“I just love performing. I love being an artist. I don’t take one day for granted,” said Janelle, who has done similar performances for the First Family.

“We party like this at the White House, honestly. There are pictures of me on Valerie Jarrett’s table just acting out,” she said.

Expect more funky jams like “Q.U.E.E.N.” on Janelle’s upcoming album The Electric Lady, due this summer. “Ya’ll will be able to understand me a little more,” she said. “I just love raw energy, honest, unpredictable.”

Watch Janelle’s impromptu dance party below.

    @Rob, You are a waste of Internet space! She is one of few artist actually out teaching women to love themselves. If you have listened to any of her interviews or speeches this woman is powerful. She loves herself and teaching others to love themselves.

    @Shaytan, What are you talking about? If you love yourself too much this will end bad… you’re like all other humans in this world and not special. Because she is a singer don’t make her special but she acts like so…

    @Rob, self-appreciation is not harmful if it’s associated with the right intentions, and basically there aren’t any flaws to be found in that of Janelle Monae. She’s bringing a good message out there

    This woman is naturally high. Other artists would’ve needed alcohol or other uppers in their system to do what Janelle did on that stage. No shame in her game and that’s why Janelle is who she is. AMAZING!
