Janelle Monae | still from video

Janelle Monáe is back with her third album, Dirty Computer, and a top-billed slot on the Made In America festival in September. Now the pop goddess has gifted us with a short video showcasing her prep for the tour. The one-minute teaser begins with her leading track “Dirty Computer”, featuring Brian Wilson, playing in the background. The video then fades into a variety of clips of the crew and her at work. In every shot, Monáe is of course dressed to the nines, working hard and killin’ it. Even though the video is only a minute long, it’s enough to get you excited for what is to come.

The first leg of the Dirty Computer Tour kicks off June 11th in Seattle and makes its way across the U.S., wrapping up in her hometown of Atlanta August 4th. Embarking on the journey with Monáe will be the soulful duo Alexe Belle and Isis Valentino, formally known as St. Beauty. After a short break, Monae comes to Philly to play Made in America on September 1st. For more information, go to the Made In America website
