After slaying the red carpet in a rainbow-colored #PRIDE ensemble, Janelle Monáe hit the stage at the 2018 BET Awards, performing two of her recent hit songs, “Django Jane” and “I Like That.”
Surrounded by more than a dozen highly-melanated dancers, dressed in nearly identical outfits, the electric lady rapped about her achievements (“Already got a Oscar for the casa / Runnin’ down / Grammys with the family / Prolly give a Tony to the homies”) and the power of Black women.
Midway through the five-minute performance, the Q.U.E.E.N. switched to her smoother cut, “I Like That,” a song addressing her pansexuality.
Mo-slay gave one of, if not the, best performance of the night according to Twitter.
Janelle Monáe is currently on a tour that kicked off earlier this month and ends in Atlanta.
