Janelle Monáe "Dance Apocalyptic"

After releasing the stellar “Q.U.E.E.N.” (with Erykah Badu) earlier this year, Janelle Monáe is following it up with her next single, “Dance Apocalyptic.” Like many of her songs, it’s high-energy with a classic, jazzy influence to it with touches of futuristic flourishes, plus her voice sounds PHENOMENAL.
