In addition to this flyness, Janelle is also dancing for each and every one of the gods. Please take a moment to reflect on that updo in the second image. It’s crucial.

Key Lyrics include:

“They keep us underground working hard for the greedy,
But when it’s time pay they turn around and call us needy.”

“You can take my wings but I’m still goin’ fly
And even when you edit me the booty don’t lie.”

“Hey sister am I good enough for your heaven?
Say will your God accept me in my black and white?
Will he approve the way I’m made?
Or should I reprogram the programming and get down?”

Translation: “I will wear my black and white tuxedo because I’m a grown woman. You don’t pay my bills so you can’t tell me what to do.”

However, the most important lyrics of the song are.

I couldn’t agree with you more Ms. Monae. You make me proud to spell my name w.o.m.a.n.

You have one of the best swags in the game and as I like to say, “If it makes you feel good, wear it.”


Of course my girl Badu is her usual self.

Erykah Badu QUEEN
