Did you guys know Janelle Monáe’s house smells like sugar cookies? And not because she is a baking-obsessive but because the scent pumps through the A/C? “Dance Apocalyptic” sounds precisely like it was made by someone who is interested in that kind of luxury item, who would invoke end of days but have it be euphoric. It’s almost the most upbeat song that mentions smoking in the girls’ room. Check out the song and the trailer for the video, which reprises the same black-and-white strips theme of “Q.U.E.E.N.” below.
The Electric Lady is slated for September release.
