WATCH: Janelle Monáe drops ‘Screwed’ video featuring futuristic party-goers

/ 06:39 PM January 08, 2019

Janelle Monáe has shared a futuristic video for her Zoë Kravitz-assisted track “Screwed” featuring actress Tessa Thompson.


In the clip, Monáe and a group of fellow revelers awaken on a rooftop just in time to see a UFO approach them. As they take flight through the streets, and the tiny, ominous object continues to follow them, they hit an underground club to dance, party and watch politically charged footage.

Later, when they emerge from the club, Tessa Thompson is kidnapped and carried away in a dark van as the UFO continues to lurk overhead.


“Screwed” was a single off Monáe’s 2018 album “Dirty Computer,” which earned an “Album of the Year” nomination for the 2019 Grammys. MKH
