This week saw the arrival of Monáe's new "Lipstick Lover" single and visual, as well as some NSFW content trending on Twitter.

If anyone has the world's attention right now thanks to their salacious antics, it's certainly Janelle Monáe. The 37-year-old began May on a high note with a trip to the Met Gala. Attendees saw them removing parts of their outfit on the red carpet to eventually unveil their bikini body under a see-through garment. Later in the evening, the vocalist went on to enchant fans even more by performing on top of a bar while wearing nothing more than her bathing suit to preview sultry new music.

Since then, Monáe has only managed to further turn up the heat. Earlier this week, she gave social media yet another sneak peek of her latest single. It came along with confirmation of a release date and title. At the end of the "Lipstick Lover" announcement video, the Kansas City native saunters out of a pool. She's wearing a cropped, white wet t-shirt, the word "PLEASURE" plastered across the front. Her chest is obviously on full display thanks to the water. Since watching it themselves, fans haven't held back on thirstily talking about Monáe's figure.

Janelle Monáe Turns Up the Heat with "Lipstick Lover"

When "Lipstick Lover" landed on Thursday (May 11), it came with an equally NSFW visual that also shows off the R&B starlet's body. However, it's nowhere near as revealing as the display Monáe put on while they were performing for an excited audience last night. As the crowd cheered her on in the midst of her song, the provocative artist lifted her crop top to flash her bare breasts to the audience, who seemed pleased with the surprise.

Of course, the moment was captured on camera by a select few and has since been circulating on Twitter and other platforms. While some have been expressing their discontent with Janelle Monáe's recent outward sexual expression, many more are feeling grateful to watch the songstress shine.

Twitter Reacts to Singer's Unexpected On Stage Flashing

"I watched that Janelle Monáe video over 20 times," one Twitter user admitted, shamelessly thirsting after her. "Janelle Monáe spent the first half of her career dressed like a wedding cake topper, and now y’all mad that she’s showing titties?" another pointed out.
