Janelle Mone Drops New Videos Celebrating Bisexuality And Black Women’s Empowerment

Janelle Moná electronic made a triumphal return to music Thursday, dropping 2 new songs and their associated videos from her hotly expected new album, “ Dirty Personal computer. ”  

The first, “ Make Me Really feel, ” has tones of early Prince , and shows Moná e making suggestive eyes plus gyrating between a man and a girl in an ’ 80s-style club.  

Meanwhile, “ Django Jane” is an ode to black women’ s empowerment. That video, which may be viewed below,   finds the particular singer-actress seated on a throne, encircled by an army of fierce, militant-looking background dancers. She drops rhymes like,   “ We gon’ start a motherfucking pussy riot/Or all of us gon’ have to put them on a cunt diet. ”

Of the two songs, “ Make Me Feel” has produced more buzz, possibly because the video clip feels like a musical celebration associated with bisexuality and winks at ongoing rumours over the nature associated with Moná e’ s relationship along with her co-star, Tessa Thompson .  

However , Moná e eschewed marking her sexuality in a Guardian interview   on Thursday, calling “ Make Me Feel” a “ celebratory song” but defining herself merely as “ sexually liberated. ”

Due out April 27,   “ Dirty Computer” is Moná e’ s first album within five years. In the meantime, the celebrity has been focusing on her film career ,   turning in acclaimed performances within “ Moonlight” and “ Concealed Figures. ”  

Still, the particular six-time Grammy nominee blamed her very own perfectionism for making her take such a long time to complete the follow-up to 2013′ s “ The Electric Lady . ”    

“ You know it is really an extremely vulnerable album and it required a while to make it because I’ mirielle a self-editor. I self-edit personally a lot, ” she told Zane Lowe of Beats 1 Stereo . “ I know that there are lots of things that I haven’ t discussed and i believe this is the album that you’ lmost all get an opportunity to get a closer glance into my mind and directly into my heart. ”
