"Primetime" by Janelle Monae, featuring Miguel. From the album "The Electric Lady" (2013)

There's a number of people who tried to write the chords, but they didn't get it right. 
I'm giving it a shot. You can play barre chords or you can put a capo on the first fret - it's your choice. 
I think it sounds best with barre chords.

Intro: |Ab Fm | Cm Eb | x2

Ab                 Fm               Cm 
Tick-tock, I'm watching the clock
                   Eb   
I can't wait 'til we get to rock
Ab                 Fm
I wanna scream and dream 
                 Cm               Eb
and throw a love parade... Is that okay?
 
Ab           Fm                  Cm 
Tonight it's me and you alone
                         Eb 
Won't make a call, won't even write a song
Ab                        Fm                      Cm  
See I've been waiting and waiting for the time to say
           Eb
Now listen baby

            Ab             Fm
When you're down, and it's hard
        Cm                         Eb
And you feel like you've given your all
       Ab         Fm                      Cm      Eb    
Baby I know we'll always keep it real and true

                  Ab       Fm
Cause baby it's a primetime for our love
Cm                           Eb
Ain't nobody peekin' but the stars above
       Ab       Fm    
It's a primetime for our love
    Cm                   Eb
And heaven is bettin' on us

Interlude: |Ab Fm | Cm Eb | x1

Ab             Fm                 Cm
Bang bang, I'm calling your name
                       Eb 
You're like a fire the world can't tame
Ab                    Fm                 Cm              Eb
I wanna riot 'til the stars come out and play... Is that okay?

Ab           Fm                 Cm
Tonight it's me and you alone
                         Eb 
Won't take a call, won't even write a song
Ab               Fm             Cm 
This will be a personal kind of day
      Eb
Listen baby

            Ab              Fm
When you're down, and it's hard
        Cm                          Eb  
And you feel like you've given your all
        Ab      Fm                    Cm       Eb
Baby my love is always right here for you... Yeah

                  Ab       Fm
Cause baby it's a primetime for our love
Cm                           Eb
Ain't nobody peekin' but the stars above
       Ab       Fm    
It's a primetime for our love
    Cm                   Eb
And heaven is bettin' on us

                  Ab       Fm
Cause baby it's a primetime for our love
Cm                           Eb
Ain't nobody peekin' but the stars above
       Ab       Fm    
It's a primetime for our love
    Cm                   Eb
And heaven is bettin' on us

Break and solo: |Ab Fm |Cm Eb | x8 
(keep playing the chords during that weird break with the vocals. 
I have no idea about the solo, but it sounds fairly simple.)

                  Ab       Fm
Cause baby it's a primetime for our love
Cm                           Eb
Ain't nobody peekin' but the stars above
       Ab       Fm    
It's a primetime for our love
    Ab                   Eb
And heaven is bettin' on us


Outro: |Ab Fm |Cm Eb | x2
