Janelle Monáe Brings Wondaland to ‘Today’

Just days after kicking off “The Eephus” tour, Janelle Monáe brought her magical Wondaland to “Today” for a performance of her hit song “Yoga” with Jidenna. Wearing all white with a regal poof of hair, Janelle looked dominant while dropping it low and hitting high notes. Two minutes in, her Wondaland Records signee Jidenna bounded on stage to perform his verse.

She also served up her hit “Tightrope” and introduced the rest of her Wondaland family including St. Beauty, Roman GianArthur, and Deep Cotton.

“These artists are visionary artists—they write, record, produce, they play instruments, and they complete the solar system that is Wondaland,” said Janelle. “It started as a movement to want to help uplift the community with our music and show a different perspective of young, black artists.”

The appearance was celebrating the release of The Eephus compilation, which is now available on iTunes.

While promoting The Eephus, Janelle and Wondaland also stopped by “Ebro in the Morning” to speak about their movement, police brutality, and Iggy Azalea.
