Watch Janelle Monáe’s body-positive video for ‘Water Slide’

Celebrating various body types and people who do not allow gender norms to pressure them into being themselves, Janelle Monáe, a star with eight GRAMMY nominations, continues to empower women, girls and non-binary people. ‘Water Slide’ taken from her fourteen-track album—The Age of Pleasure—is a freeing, liberating sound, evoking feelings of wanting to relax/keep it cute on the beach. Check out the calming visual directed by her and GRAMMY Award-winning director Alan Ferguson for the catchy pop single.

Some other incredible people she features are Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Doechii, Grace Jones, Nia Long, Amaarae, Sister Nancy, and CKay.
