Janelle Monáe’s Wet T-Shirt Video Tantalizes Twitter As She Promotes New Music: Watch

After recently being dissed for "dressing like the Monopoly Man," by a Twitter troll, Janelle Monáe has made it her personal mission to remind the world of her sex appeal. To begin the month of May, the R&B singer previously joined countless other famous faces in New York at the Met Gala, using her time walking on the red carpet to do a dramatic outfit reveal that left her nearly naked under a see-through, structured dress. Later that evening, cameras caught her dancing up a storm in nothing more than a bikini while standing on a bar at an after-party, clearly having the time of her life.

Now that the buzz from Anna Wintour's annual event has died down, Monáe is taking more steps to keep all eyes on her. On Tuesday (May 9) morning, the 37-year-old posted a video on her Twitter page, which begins on a wholesome note as she strums at her guitar and croons out a song she plans to release later this week. In the final 15 seconds of the clip, we see Janelle soaking in the clear blue pool water, wearing a skintight white t-shirt, with the word "PLEASURE" written across the front.

Janelle Monáe Dropping "Lipstick Lover" This Week

As she maintains eye contact with the camera, Monae saucily saunters out of the pool, her chest obviously on full display under the soaked shirt. As she flaunts what she's got, her beautiful voice continues to play in the background, as well as confirmation of her upcoming single's title and release date. According to this morning's tweet, "Lipstick Lover" will arrive on DSPs this Thursday (May 11).

The solo effort will be the Kansas native's second release of 2023, following her work with Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 on "Float," which has also since seen numerous remixes arrive online. Are you looking forward to hearing Janelle Monáe's "Lipstick Lover" single later this week? Let us know in the comments, and tap back in later for more pop culture/hip-hop news updates.
