Put everything down; this is not a drill. After a week being premiered exclusively over on TIDAL, Grimes’ new monster track featuring Janelle Monae is now out for public consumption.
This is the best new music that we’ve heard from Grimes in a while. With a huge stomping beat that pays homage to Missy Elliott, ‘Venus Fly’ is a subversive anthem that has Monae shouting ‘Why You Looking At Me Now?’.
The video is also insanely entertaining; with crisp, crazy visuals and intense colours swirling around Grimes and Monae, who are both oozing attitude to burn. This is another music video directed and edited by Grimes, and it features strong imagery of breaking out of the mold and growing a solid pair of wings.
