Grimes & Janelle Monáe
In their hot new single, the future is female
The new video for “Venus Fly” is not to be missed. Grimes & Janelle Monáe have created an epic fantasy that is a worthy visual counterpart to their first (and hopefully not last) musical collaboration. “Venus Fly” opens with futuristic warrior princesses, flaming swords and an interstellar voyage to space—and just gets better from there. Grimes & Janelle Monáe appear in full cybergoth ensembles and switch up with multiple space warrior looks that are a perfect match for the bumping beats and trippy vibe of their single. “Venus Fly” is featured on Grimes’ new album, Art Angels, her critically-acclaimed fourth effort. She says of this video, “I’m so grateful to [have] the opportunity to create the images I’ve been imagining in my head for a minute.” You can watch it, above.
