Yeeeeeeah, buddy! Janelle Monáe is back, son! She took time out from filming dope ass movies like Moonlight and Hidden Figures to bless us with that fuego, man. With that being said, I want to take this time to briefly talk about the two new joints she put out, fam. All in all, “Django Jane” and “Make Me Feel” showcase different aspects of Monáe’s artistry. Either way, LC has been JAMMIN’, bruh!
Ok, before I get to the Prince influences and Tessa Thompson goodness of the “Make Me Feel” video, let me talk about “Django Jane.” Now, all I know is, Monáe got bars, son! I mean, I knew she could rap from her “Tightrope (Wondamix)” track with Lupe Fiasco and B.o.B. However; she legit has punchlines on this new track, man! Look, as a rapper myself, I always appreciate good wordplay, fam. So, when I hear lines like “I cut ’em off like Van Gogh, now, pan right for the angle,” I get hyped, bruh! In addition, when I hear bars like “I got away with murder, no Scandal, cue the violins and the Viola‘s,” I can’t help but tip my cap, folks. At the end of the day, Monáe can rhyme for real, people!
Moving on, let’s speak about this “Make Me Feel” video. Now, I must say, I have a MASSIVE crush on Janelle Monáe. So, the rumors of her dating Tessa Thompson only suck because that eliminates my chances, son. Listen, I’m pretty sure my wife would say our marriage eliminates my chances, but she understands how hot Monáe is, man. Anyway, Thompson is prominently featured in the video and their chemistry has everybody talking. On top of that, the music is phenomenal, fam! Listen, when most artists attempt a Prince sound, they fuck it up. But, Monáe is able to take the Purple One’s template and make it her own. On the real, I’d bet money that he’s grooving to those guitar licks in Heaven, bruh.
In the end, what else can I say, son? Ultimately, Monáe is two-for-two with these new releases, man. By and by, I can’t wait for her Dirty Computer album, fam. Keeping it a buck, she’s one of the few artists that I truly believe is incapable of making wack shit. So, on that note, let’s jam to that new Dylan hot fire, bruh. That is all. LC out.
