GAP (one of my favorite clothing brands) has released a special sneak peek of its “Meet Me in the GAP” Holiday campaign featuring the one and only Janelle Monáe. The Grammy-nominated singer, actress and fashion maven is already prominently positioned on the company’s website and is also featured in a new video with a collage of diverse singers performing the classic tune, “You Got What I Need.”

Monáe told PEOPLE, that the holidays are a time of finding inspiration and doing good. “Because I love the unity. I always try to lead with doing things that are bigger than just Janelle Monáe and bigger than myself. How can I be a part of a community? How can I contribute? And so that’s why I love collaborating with people who are different from me. I think it’s about individuality meeting in this wide space and just painting it with so many different colors from people all over the world. I get a lot of inspiration when I have conversations around Christmas time and around the holidays.”

Check out the video below and don’t forget to go to on November 1 when they reveal the full campaign.
