Watch Janelle Monae Bring ‘Pynk’ to ‘Austin City Limits’

‘Dirty Computer’ artist’s episode to air November 17th

Janelle Monae released one of 2018’s most buzzed-about albums this spring with Dirty Computer, and now she’s taking a victory lap through Austin City Limits. In early October, between her performances at the Austin City Limits music festival, she taped an hour-long set for the long-running PBS television series. The full episode will air this weekend on November 17th — and you can watch her joyous performance of album highlight “Pynk” right now.

Monae rules the stage in a Dirty Computer sweatshirt, a militant-chic beret and her signature pink pantaloons from the “Pynk” music video. Her five-person backing band and four smooth synchronized dancers join her in the celebration. See the full set list for the episode — which also includes a cover of her friend Prince’s classic “Purple Rain” — below.

The pop boundary-pusher recently discussed Dirty Computer and more at a public Q&A with Rolling Stone staff writer Brittany Spanos. She’s set to appear in director Robert Zemeckis’ new film, Marwen Station, with Steve Carell in December.
