Consider it a bonus track for the week (I’ll still be posting a song on Wednesday, as per usual).
If you aren’t listening to Janelle Monae by now you are seriously missing out.
This one is especially marvelous…
The latest single by Janelle Monáe. It has not charted yet, not all her songs do, but what a wonderful song and video and lyrics – with Erykah Badu thrown in. Wow.
Girl, this is craziness
Let me tell you
[Verse 1: Janelle Monae]
I can’t believe all of the things they say about me
Walk in the room they throwing shade left to right
They be like, “Ooh, she serving face”
And I just tell ‘em cut me up and get down
They call us dirty ‘cuz we break all your rules down
And we just came to act a fool, is that all right?
(Girl, that’s alright)
They be like, “Ooh, let them eat cake”
But we eat wings and throw them bones on the ground
Am I a freak for dancing around?
Am I a freak for getting down?
I’m coming up, don’t cut me down
