How cool is “Make Me Feel”, the new song of Janelle Monáe? It’s been love at first listen! The singer/actress will release her third album, “Dirty Computer”, on April 27. Meanwhile, we can listen to two singles, “Django Jane” and “Make Me Feel”.
The sound of “Make Me Feel”, with its funky rhythm and synth line, clearly reminds of Prince, which was involved in the making of the song. I love when Monáe sings “It’s like I’m powerful with a little bit of tender, an emotional sexual bender”. She even reminds of Prince in some dance movements.
The video was directed by Alan Ferguson and styled by Maeve Reilly. It’s pretty opulent and colorful (with a sequence of purple lighting). Obviously, Janelle Monáe sports some cool outfits and many designer pieces.
I particularly like the striped sequined jacket, but the pieces that probably steal the show are the Swarovski crystals veil by House of Emmanuele (Monáe also wears it on the cover of the album) and the see-through rose-embroidered Adam Selman jeans. I’m sure somebody loves The Lace by Tatyana crystal bralette, too. For those who can’t sport such statement pieces… colored tights are definitely back!
