Janelle Monae is officially back, and she is wasting zero time. The singer dropped two new songs on Thursday (Feb. 22), providing powerful corresponding visuals for each. The tracks “Django Jane” and “Make Me Feel” are both set to appear on her forthcoming album Dirty Computer, due out April 27.
Sitting atop a throne, and surrounded by a female army in matching suits, Monae delivers an empowering anthem on “Django Jane.” On the track, she confidently raps about gender, race and the intersection of it all: “Remember when they used to say I looked to man-ish, black girl magic, y'all can’t stand it." Of course, the video also features mentions of "pussy power," and raised-fist symbolism.
