In Janelle Monáe’s new video for “PrimeTime,” our hero teams up with Miguel in a futuristic search for love. The site, naturally, is a night club where dancer droids are programmed to entertain male clientele with Monáe playing a humble cocktail server.
Miguel arrives and catches sight of her, and like a lot of us, is unable to pay attention to anything else — not even the body-rolling dancers on pedestals. Conflict ensues, but Miguel’s chivalrous nature wins in the end — they head back to his place for chinese take-out.
“PrimeTime” is from Monáe’s latest album The Electric Lady.
