Have you streamed Janelle's new masterpiece yet?

The album rollout for Janelle Monae's The Age of Pleasure has been one of the singer's most successful (and salacious) to date. Her long-awaited LP finally landed this New Music Friday (June 9), complete with features from Doechii, Grace Jones, and Sister Nancy, among others. The genre-bending artist shared "Float" with Seun Kuti and Egypt 80 and later, "Lipstick Lover" as singles, but of the new arrivals on the tracklist, titles like "Champagne Sh*t," "Phenomenal," and "Black Sugar Beach" appear to be fan favourites.

Not only does the project's cover show off a topless Monae happily swimming with friends, but her famous breasts also made numerous appearances while she was outside promoting The Age of Pleasure. Not only did she briefly reveal them to a crowd watching her perform live earlier this spring, but the Dirty Computer songstress had them painted on the album's vinyl version too. She happily flashed the artwork to fans in a new clip shared on social media this weekend, only causing her fanbase to grow further.

In the video, Monae confidently struts across a room wearing tiny red and white booty shots, a cropped t-shirt with "PLEASURE" clearly written across the front and knee-high white boots. As she walks, the singer's collaboration with Doechii blasts through speakers behind her. "And they all bow to you / How you feel? Phenomenal," the 37-year-old lip-syncs along the catchy track. "Ready for round two? / B*tch, I feel so phenomenal."

As she approaches the camera the vocalist lifts up The Age of Pleasure vinyl she's carrying in her hands, quickly opening it to reveal her bare breasts forever immortalized for fans on the inside. Obviously we're keeping things PG, but you can find the uncensored footage here. Have you streamed Janelle Monae's new LP yet?
