Janelle Monáe has outdone herself with her latest music video for Pynk, as it celebrates female anatomy in every (creative) way possible. 

If Janelle Monáe’s new music video for her latest single, Pynk, is anything to go by, then 2018 really is the year of the woman.

The song, which also features fellow female artist Grimes, is truly a celebration of female anatomy. And, when we say ‘truly’, we mean it: the accompanying music video is a rose-hued cinematic ode to vaginas everywhere.

Not only does Monáe embrace every sartorial version of pink possible, but it’s clear that she’s waving goodbye to the vagina dress, and saying hello to pussy pants. Because it’s 2018, and feminist slogan tees just won’t cut it anymore.

From pink neon pussy power signs to actress Tessa Thompson metaphorically emerging from Monáe’s vagina, it’s full of female-centric shots. 

Writing on YouTube, Monáe describes the video as a “brash celebration of self love. Sexuality. And p*ssy power! PYNK is the colour that unites us all, for pink is the colour found in the deepest and darkest nooks and crannies of humans everywhere …”

Featured on her third album, Dirty Computer, the lyrics are as real and honest as it gets: “Pink like the inside of your, baby (we’re all just pink) / Pink like the walls and the doors, maybe (deep inside, we’re all just pink) / Pink like your fingers in my, maybe / Pink is the truth you can’t hide,” she sings.

Goodbye vagina dress, hello pussy pants. 

And, of course, people have taken to Twitter to show their appreciation for the all the greatness compacted into one single video.
