This week, Janelle Monae and newcomer Jidenna led a march protesting police brutality in Philly. Now, Monáe and her Wondaland Records crew have released “Hell You Talmbout”, a powerful protest song, featuring the entire Wondaland roster (Monáe, Jidenna, Roman GianArthur, Deep Cotton, St. Beauty, and George 2.0).
This song really takes us there. The drums, the chants, the raw emotion. I’m so glad to see artists using their voices in this way.
What’s also great about this is…I think it’s authentic. They’re not doing it because it’s what’s “in”, they made this song because it’s how they really feel! Check it out below.
