Janelle Monáe Teaches Sesame Street the Power of Perseverance

Bert can't sing the right notes. Cookie Monster can't bake the right cookies. Elmo can't do math. That is, until a tuxedo-clad Janelle Monáe arrives on Sesame Street to teach them "The Power of Yet."


Be sure and add this to your weekend jams, which — who are we kidding? — is probably all Sesame Street songs by this point anyway.
