After having their song “We Are Young” be covered on Glee (and becoming Season 3’s biggest hit on iTunes), pop-rock group fun. score another major solid by nabbing Janelle Monae for the single’s video. Janelle, whose voice appears on the tune, stands right in the middle of the slowest-moving club fight you’ve ever seen. (Though we wouldn’t have minded if the band just remade their first set of visuals for the song and had Janelle in bed, slowly peeling an apple.) Join the fun. in the Marc Klasfeld-directed video below.

Prepare to see a whole lot more of Ms. Monae in 2012, as the tuxedo-wearing lady is planning to drop two albums this year. And as for fun., their sophomore album Some Nights, produced by Digging-featured producer Jeff Bhasker, will drop February 21.
