No, no, the booty don’t lie…
It’s all about the neo-soul sisterhood on Janelle Monáe and Erykah Badu’s finger snappin’ and foot tappin’ banger, “Q.U.E.E.N.” The track is the first single off of Janelle’s forthcoming Electric Lady, and in it she tackles all kinds of subject like females throwing shade, social justice, and defying the media’s labels. Erykah, of course, lends her unique vocals to give the track a jazzy vibe, and it’s obvious that these two have a lot in common when it comes their views on how women are perceived in the media and music.
Hey sister am I good enough for your heaven?
Say will your God accept me in my black and white?
Will he approve the way I’m made?
Or should I reprogram the programming and get down?
Even if it makes others uncomfortable
I wanna love who I am
Even if it makes other uncomfortable
I will love who I am
When Janelle caught up with Billboard magazine backstage at this year’s Coachella, she said the inspiration for the song was organic, birthed from real life conversations that she and her “big sister” Erykah have.
