If this were 1998 and Janelle Monáe just released her music video, "Pynk," she'd be sitting at the top of MTV's Total Request Live every day for months.

The album will apparently come with a 50-minute Afrofuturist film featuring black, brown, queer, and trans people under threat from an authoritarian government trying to scrape their memories.
