Video: Janelle Monae " Tightrope"



We could watch Janelle Monae dance all day. One has to wonder if her pompadour is just a ball of magical energy that trickles down to her toes or rather electrifies her into a James Brown-esque dance machine. We're convinced that she is a dancehall queen though. Her fancy footwork in this video is the best Nuh Linga/Sweep dance we have ever seen. There's even a little of the Oh My Swing!

Dancehall is all about people with huge personalities and Monae has one of the biggest. To truly be a dancehall queen, there are the quirky-looking outfits. Janelle may go for a more tailored look than the average badda gyal (more silk, less spandex) but she's got dancing in a circle and the impress the crowd thing down pat. We're just saying the girl can bust a move. Watch the video and learn an ankle twisting move or two. If you try it at home do not blame us.
