Janelle Monaé Dances On Bar In Bikini At Met Gala Afterparty

Janelle Monaé is enjoying every bit of the spotlight. Even though the artist hasn't been releasing much music over the last few years, that certainly doesn't mean she has been out of view. Monaé has appeared in several acting roles, including a critically acclaimed turn in last year's Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The film was a sequel to the hit 2020 film Knives Out, which starred Daniel Craig. Monaé's role in the film even earned her several awards. However, many fans have been eager for new music. The artist's last release, Dirty Computer, was released more than five years ago.

Luckily for fans, Monaé has still managed to keep fans satisfied with a few singles. Since her last album, she has also released the singles "Stronger" and "Say My Name (Hell You Talmbout)." Additionally, she contributed to the Lady & The Tramp soundtrack with her song, "That's Enough." Earlier this year, fans finally got more music from Monaé. In February, she released her latest single, "Float," after a two-year break. While Monae showcases her vocal skills in the song, she also incorporates hip-hop elements. It was a bit of a switch-up in style for her, but "Float" is a catchy tune that's likely to get stuck in your head.

Janelle Monaé Lets Loose

Last night, Janelle Monaé was in attendance for the Met Gala. Upon arrival, she was demure and elegant. She paid tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, as was the theme of the event, with her stylish red carpet look. When she arrived on the scene, she was wearing an oversized monochrome Thom Browne coat. Then, in a stunning reveal, she stripped it off to show off her body in a two-piece and see-through hoop skirt combo. Monaé owned the look and flaunted her trim figure as she walked up the stairs to the gala.

At the afterparty, Monaé let loose completely. In a video posted to Instagram by The Shade Room, the singer can be dancing on top of the bar at The Boom Boom Room in NYC. In the spicy clip, Monaé is adorned in the same two-piece from the carpet look sans-hoop skirt. A crowd cheers her on from behind as she moves her body to the DJ's beat. It looks like she's really living her best life. What do you think of the clip? Sound off in the comments below!
