As well as the total celebration of sexuality, the video is also a celebration of the vagina being a functioning part of the body, with direct references to pubic hair and "sex cells".

The album component of Monáe's DIRTY COMPUTERis available for pre-order and includes downloads of "PYNK", (featuring Grimes), "Make Me Feel", and "Django Jane." . As Vox puts it, "She and her backup dancers wear voluminous pink trousers that, when opened, reveal layers of ruffles that deliberately echo vaginas". I mean, look at this. She rocks a variety of fashionable outfits including pink ruffled trousers made to look like her most intimate body part.

Monae, who has a successful acting career, with her previously starring in the likes of "Hidden Figures" and "Moonlight", took to Twitter to share links to her vid, which is, conveniently, very pink, and is shot in the desert. "Pink like the tongue that goes down / Pink like the paradise found".

Janelle Monáe, 32, just broke the Internet with "PYNK", a catchy new track that features Grimes. "PYNK is a brash celebration of creation. self love. sexuality. and p*ssy power!" reads the video description. "PYNK is where the future is born...." "I know that there are a lot of things that I haven't discussed and I think this is the album that you'll get an opportunity to get a closer glimpse into my mind and into my heart".
