One of the key elements of 'Tightrope' by Janelle Monáe is the pace. As a singular piece of work, or as part of the phenomenal The ArchAndroid, the lack of breathing space is what makes the whole experience so overwhelming. The Dø have decided to go against that model by bringing us a sexy slow jam version of the track (mostly, anyway), and oddly it works, especially when the second verse kicks in. No Big Boi, or French equivalent, so instead they present us with an epic guitar solo. Works for us.
