Featuring Grimes, the song is an upbeat celebration of feminine power. The video explodes with shades of pink in many forms, from grapefruits to cats to donuts. But people zeroed in on one image in particular.

Hmm. This looks a lot like those Georgia O'Keeffe paintings that make me so uncomfortable.— Will Goss (@williambgoss) April 10, 2018
It gets better: At one point in the video, Tessa Thompson peaks out between Monae’s pink, ruffly legs. The shot boosted speculation that Monáe and the actress are dating.

In general, the video and its imagery are being hailed as a symbol of queer friendship and (maybe) love.
