Erykah Badu and Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monáe jams with her best friend Erykah Badu in the funky fresh video for “Q.U.E.E.N.,” directed by Alan Ferguson. The rebellious ladies bring their collaboration to life in a living museum exhibit known as “Project Q.U.E.E.N.”

Janelle trades her tuxedo for a black-and-white dress, Givenchy heels, and tights, while her accomplice Badoula Oblongata walks a poodle and models avant-garde looks.

“I just love her. We call each other twins. I talk to her on the phone at least three or four times a week,” Janelle said of her BFF. “It was really inspired by our private conversation, dialogue that she and I have and continue to have. … She’s a strong woman, she’s an electric lady, she’s somebody that I look up to.”

The female anthem will appear on Janelle’s upcoming album The Electric Lady, due this summer.
