This video gives me chills everytime I watch it. It was done on the first take…read why after the jump.
…Directed by Wendy Morgan, features Monae from the shoulders up, during one continuous take. By the 1:42 mark, after singing the line “I was made to believe there’s something wrong with me,” Janelle begins to lose her composure and eventually tears start to flow.
Monae recently spoke to Rap-Up.com about the video for her second ArchAndroid single—particularly the tears that flowed. “I didn’t know how that happened but it just did. I was very moved by that,” she said. “It was really a special moment; then everybody else started to cry.”
