Janelle Monae and the Wondaland Arts Society takes a stand on #BlackLivesMatter.
Using their music capabilities as an ultra force, the Wonda-Team takes their thoughts to the streets of Philly and New York against police brutality with the sounds of “Hell You Talmbout.”
On Instagram, Janelle says about the song:
This song is a vessel. It carries the unbearable anguish of millions. We recorded it to channel the pain, fear, and trauma caused by the ongoing slaughter of our brothers and sisters. We recorded it to challenge the indifference, disregard, and negligence of all who remain quiet about this issue. Silence is our enemy. Sound is our weapon. They say a question lives forever until it gets the answer it deserves… Won’t you say their names?
