On Wednesday, Janelle Monáe teased ‘Lipstick Lover’ with one of the hottest wet t-shirt clips of all time. The short vid showed the singer emerging from a pool soaking wet in a see-through T-shirt. Late eighties Sabrina ‘Summertime Love’ vibe except Janelle won’t be singing “Boys, Boys, Boys.”

Anthem for babes

Social media erupted with comments describing the vid as an ‘anthem for babes’ and ‘perhaps the gayest thing I’ve seen in my life’. It seems that’s exactly what the singer intended.

“As we enter into The Age Of Pleasure, ‘Lipstick Lover’ is our freeassmothafucka anthem inspired by f.a.m. for f.a.m. This is our oasis made with love, rooted in self-acceptance, throbbing in self-discovery, and signed with cherry-red kisses from me to you.”

I like lipstick on my neck,
It let me know I’m your number one select.
I like lipstick on my neck,
Hands around my waist so you know what’s comin’ next.
