blame it on Meka January 8, 2019

Janelle Monáe released one of the DopeHouse’s favorite albums of 2018 in Dirty Computer. She now returns with a visual for “Screwed.”

Starring Zoë Kravitz (who also provides guest vocals) and Tessa Thompson, the video actually comes from a portion of Monáe’s short film Dirty Computer: An Emotion Picture. In it, Janelle and Tessa are being chased by mysterious forces, and in between the politically-charged sightings Tessa ultimately ends up kidnapped.

With Dirty Computer nominated for album of the year at the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, the clip can be seen below.
