Janelle Monáe Wows with Grimes Collaboration 'Pynk'
This is stunning...
2018 belongs to Janelle Monáe. The artist extraordinaire may have spent the past few years wowing us on screen with her roles in award-winning films including Moonlight and Hidden Figures but she is now back releasing music again and she is on fire.
The 'Tightrope' hitmaker just debuted her new single 'Pynk' on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe and it is incredible.

Not only that but the multi-talented superstar also dropped its dreamy video which stars Tessa Thompson.
The song itself is a glorious ode to femininity and its Emma Westenberg video is too. It is its description.
“PYNK is a brash celebration of creation. self love. sexuality. and pussy power! PYNK is the color that unites us all, for pink is the color found in the deepest and darkest nooks and crannies of humans everywhere... PYNK is where the future is born....”
Seriously, like Janelle's previous singles and visuals this year ('Make Me Feel', 'Django Jane'), 'Pynk' is perfect and it has gotten us even more excited than we already were to hear the 'Q.U.E.E.N.' performer's upcoming studio album Dirty Computer.
'Pynk' was co-written by Janelle and Tayla Parx ('Love Lies') and it features vocals by Grimes.
Janelle worked with Grimes previously on the track 'Venus Fly' on Grimes' album Art Angels.
Dirty Computer is set to be released at the end of this month on April 27th.
In Janelle's words, it is an 'emotion picture. We cannot wait to hear/see it.
