Call the Law - Janelle Monae feat. OutKast

Legbamel Not-Pop

I've been swooning to Janelle Monae all night but when I came across Call the Law I knew I had to share it with you. She wields her amazing talent deftly with fantastic creativity but this one has serious boogie-down potential with bonus creepiness thrown in as a bonus.

Have a listen to Call the Law and a whole great whack of her fantastic Metropolis albums (the first, "Metropolis" and the second, "Archandroid" are both a lengthy and inventive rock/jazz/hip hop opera about an android that falls in love and is pursued by the authorities for it. It's part Blade Runner and part musical genius.

Call the Law, however, has nothing to do with the story. It's love gone very, very wrong, though how wrong you don't realize until near the end. "Call the law and hold the applause", indeed.
