Janelle Monae – Dance Apocalyptic

It's not often you hear a ukulele in today's recorded music, but the ever-so-creative Janelle Monae makes it work in her new single “Dance Apocalyptic,” a retro, uptempo, rock n' roll dance tune that will make you want to be transported back in time to a jumpin' 1950's sock hop.

“Dance Apocalyptic” follows “Q.U.E.E.N.,” her collab with Erykah Badu, both from her upcoming album, The Electric Lady, due September 10. An accompanying video will premiere on July 2. Plus, catch Janelle take the stage at the 2013 BET Awards this Sunday, June 30.
