Janelle Monae Throws a Sorority Party in the ‘Electric Lady’ Video

Today, Janelle Monae released the video for her song "Electric Lady," the fourth single off last year's album The Electric Lady. The video features Monae as a sorority girl at one of the swankiest Greek-life parties we've ever seen, complete with towers of cupcakes, a marching band, and some sort of video-conference center featuring celeb pals — including Kimbra, Estelle, and T-Boz — on screens that we assume are provided by Samsung (there is a lot of Samsung product placement in this video). Anyway, it all looks way more fun than playing beer-pong and drinking out of a funnel.
