Janelle Monáe dropped the music video for her latest single “Pynk,” an anthem that celebrates womanhood of all types.
The video features Monáe and her backup dancers wearing labia pants that represent the female anatomy.
“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,” Monáe sings on the track.
Actress Tessa Thompson, who also appears in the video, tweeted that the video is also meant to include and celebrate the transgender community.

Thompson and Monáe are rumored to be a couple but neither of them has confirmed their relationship status. Thompson also appeared in Monáe’s previous music video “Make Me Feel,” as the singer’s female love interest.
“Pynk,” which also features Grimes on the track, is the third single from Monáe’s upcoming album “Dirty Computer.”
Fans have been praising the video for its LGBT themes and allusion to Thompson and Monáe’s possible relationship.
