Janelle channels Sinead

I didn't pick up on the similarity to Sinead O'Connor's video for "Nothing Compares 2 U" until I saw this post on Idolator:

"The clip, 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."

Comparisons aside, the video is a pretty big departure from the dance-filled "Tightrope," but it's stark and moving, and proves she is a talent to watch.
