    She may have the same fire in her eyes, but this time our dapper queen let's her hair flow down out of her usual styled-up pompadour:

    "Dance Apocalyptic" is the latest song off her forthcoming sophomore album, The Electric Lady.

    The video features the fleet-footed Monaé singing on an American band-stand type stage:

    And this time she is not giving the gentleman ANY love:

    Because this video is all about the ladies:

    She rocks out with an all-female band:

    And gives love to the all-female crowd:

    The inpiration for Electric Lady apparently came from paintings of female figures that Monae herself painted onstage:

    Monae also stated she wanted to be more outspoken on her personal view of politics, sexuality, and love.
