Janelle Monáe Drops New Song 'Turntables'

  /  09.08.2020

Janelle Monáe fights the power.

The singer-activist releases her inspiring anthem “Turntables,” which was written for and featured in the upcoming Amazon Studios documentary, All In: The Fight for Democracy.

Janelle sings about a new political and social order while spreading enlightenment. “Got a new agenda with a new dream / I’m kicking out the old regime / Liberation, elevation, education,” she sings on the soul-funk record.


“I’m simply watching, examining and wanting to highlight all of the people who are on the front lines, fighting for our democracy, fighting against racial inequalities, fighting against white supremacy, fighting against systemic racism and systemic oppression,” Janelle told Apple Music. “This song is to keep us motivated. This song is to lift up and keep us galvanized when we’re fatigued. And this song is really for the people.”

“Turntables” marks Janelle’s first new music since her third solo album, 2018’s Dirty Computer.

All In: The Fight for Democracy opens in select theaters on Sept. 9 before streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video starting Sept. 18. She also stars in the upcoming psychological horror thriller Antebellum, which premieres Sept. 18.
