What I'm Listening To

Janelle Monáe, "Tightrope" (featuring Big Boi)

[Lyrics available here.]

[Video paraphrase: The video features Monáe and other black women and men, dressed in tuxedos and black-and-white saddle shoes dancing in some sort of institutional building. Monáe is followed throughout by two mirror-faced wraiths, watching her and simultaneously reflecting herself back to her. Ooh, creepy!]

Thanks very much to Shaker neintales, who sent the link to this video as well as the link to "Many Moons."
