Janelle realeased the album of the year for me. I´m still playing it regularly. I also love "Electric Lady". Janelle Always delivers. :D

Still need to listen to the full thing but Take A Byte is so good! Sounds like it would've been a hit in the 00s.

But those are just scenes from Dirty Computer the movie. She should've edited the movie in parts and release it as a playlist on YT. It would get much more views, if only for the fact there's a replay value in videos themselves. Even though I love DC as an album, the movie isn't really good and I was done with it after one viewing. It has great visuals and ideas, but the story and execution isn't the best.

I don't think it would have gotten that much views. Putting the complete movie is a better idea because people would check it out as a whole. I doubt that casual viewers would click and check all her videos out. She isn't Beyoncé. Janelle would surely gain more views if she wins.

I love watching the whole thing as a singular film to be honest.

Yah there is something more epic about one video than a series of them back-to-back

The emotion picture is a masterpiece as is, I remember watching it with my friends daily for at least a month after it came out
