MTVU—Where Kurt Loder is the dean?—has just debuted the dance-heavy video for Janelle Monae's new single "Tightrope." We've been on the Monae tip for quite awhile now, and given her recent popstar ascension and the hype surrounding The ArchAndroid (out on May 18th), it looks like she has arrived.

I thought metal bands were the only musicians allowed to film a video inside an actual sanitarium, but this Wendy Morgan directed clip finds Monae, Big Boi, and countless well-dressed dancers shaking it inside the empty halls. Now where is our Portland tour date?
