And like that Janelle Monae is back and she’s better than ever! Last week the Wondaland singer released two tracks off of her forthcoming album Dirty Computer. The album’s lead single “Make Me Feel” finds the queen channeling the late Prince. The other track, “Django Jane,” finds Monae setting it off for women. “Yeah, Jamanati they still jammin’ / Box office numbers, and they doin’ outstandin’ / Runnin’ outta space in my damn bandwagon / Remember when they used to say I look too mannish,” she spits. “Black girl magic, y’all can’t stand it / Y’all can’t ban it, made out like a bandit / They been trying hard just to make us all vanish / I suggest they put a flag on a whole ‘nother planet,” she continues. In the video, Monae represents a group of beautiful women dressed down to a T! The video is dripping #BlackGirlMagic and feminism! Always appreciate some good art from Ms. Monae. The anticipated album Dirty Computer is due for release April 27th! Until then, check out Janelle’s “Django Jane” below!
