Janelle Monae Wins R&B Video of the Year in 2014 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards
All hail the queen! Janelle Monae won R&B Video of the Year in the 2014 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards. Her funky video for ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ featuring Erykah Badu beat out some hot videos in our poll of the best R&B videos of 2013.
The clip features Monae and her band in a museum, which becomes a futuristic party — patrons twerk to the funky jam session. Monae and Badu hold court over the party as they chant, “the booty don’t lie.”
Monae’s video received 46 percent of the vote surpassing videos from Robin Thicke (‘Blurred Lines’), Rihanna (‘Pour It Up’), Justin Timberlake (‘Suit & Tie’), Daft Punk (‘Get Lucky’), John Legend (‘Made to Love’), the Weeknd (‘Live For’), Solange (‘Losing You’), Luke James (‘Oh God’) and Bilal (‘Back to Love’).
Congratulations Janelle Monae! We wish you the best in 2014.
