Everyone’s favorite android, Atlanta’s own Janelle Monae has blessed us with the video for “Cold War,” the second single from her album The Archandroid.
Check it out:
Shot the day after she shot the video for her breakout single, “Tightrope,” Janelle Monae told Rap-Up.com about her experience filming the clip:
“I remember crying during ‘Cold War’ [on the] first take. I didn’t know how that happened but it just did. I was very moved by that. It was really a special moment; then everybody else started to cry.”
“‘Cold War’ reveals what the ArchAndroid looks like,” she states. “[The video] deals with a psychosis—you’re in my mind and you get a chance to understand Metropolis, where it all stemmed [from] and my thoughts. It’s very psychedelic and trippy.”
