Everyone’s favorite android, Janelle Monae has blessed us with the video for “Cold War,” the second single from her album The Archandroid.
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.”
