(UPI) -- Janelle Monae and Miguel are star crossed lovers in the video for their collaboration "Primetime."

Directed by Alan Ferguson the video tells the story of Cindi Mayweather (Monae) and her first love Joey Vice (Miguel).

"The Emotion Picture gives a glimpse at Cindi's humble beginnings as a "cyber-server" at the Electric Sheep nightclub, a syn bar serving high-class "show droids" to the rich and lonely in a dangerous section of Metropolis known as Slop City," reads the clip's description.

"Incidentally, the innovative cybersoul music played at the club directly impacted Cindi, and she began singing and performing her own innovative compositions a short time after quitting this assignment. In addition, Cindi became determined to change the public perception of what an electric lady could be, dream and aspire to after working in the dismal conditions at the club."

"Primetime" is the fourth single of Monae's second studio album "The Electric Lady."
