New Video: Janelle Monáe – ‘TurnTables’

Published: Tuesday 15th Sep 2020 by Rashad

Janelle Monáe places a burning spotlight on social injustice in America via the music video for her new song, ‘Turntables’ (found on the soundtrack to the upcoming Amazon Studios documentary, ‘All In: The Fight for Democracy’).

Highlighting the juxtaposition between those who have gotten to enjoy the ‘American Dream’ versus marginalized communities that have not, Monae raps and sings powerful lyrics while famous images of civil unrest flashes between scenes.

“I keep my hands dirty, my mind clean / Got a new agenda with a new dream, uh / I’m kickin’ out the old regime / Liberation, elevation, education / America, you a lie / But the whole world ’bout to testify,” she passionately relays.

Featuring iconic images of Muhammad Ali to Angela Davis, LGBTQ+ rights champions, and more, look inside to see this Child.-directed masterpiece.
