Janelle Monae And Tessa Thompson Get Cozy In New Album Teaser Video
Janelle Monae has been putting in work. And while most of her recent endeavors have taken place on the big screen (i.e. Moonlight or Hidden Figures), we know her first and foremost as a musician. And judging by a recent video, posted to Monae’s Twitter page, we may be witnessing the comeback.
According to Pitchfork, the trailer for what Monae calls an “emotion picture” serves as the announcement for her forthcoming album Dirty Computer.
The trailer for the film features Monae’s friend…and rumored girlfriend, actress Tessa Thompson. Back in 2010, Monae told Rolling Stone: “The lesbian community has tried to claim me, but I only date androids. Nothing like an android, they don’t cheat on you.”
But sexuality is fluid and it’s possible that things and people change, especially if you meet the right person.
The trailer for the album marks the first time Monae is releasing a musical project since 2013’s Electric Lady and is set to air before some Black Panther screenings.
