Grimes featuring Janelle Monáe – Venus Fly

Grimes has released the music video for Venus Fly, an extract of her 2015 album Art Angels, which features Janelle Monáe, who had an incredible 2016 with the release of Hidden Figures and Moonlight.

The visually stunning music video, which is presented by Tidal and directed by Grimes, presents the singers as futuristic warriors with fire swords and overlaid with stylish bubbles bursting with paint and more fire, petals and glass shattering.
