Janelle Monáe and her badass record label, Wondaland, led a Black Lives Matter march in Philadelphia yesterday, and today she released a powerful new mix of her bonus track, “Hell You Talmbout,” off her latest effort, The Electric Lady. On the new version, Monáe is accompanied by labelmates Deep Cotton, St. Beauty, Jidenna, Roman GianArthur, and George 2.0. The track features chants of “Say his/her name” along with the names of recent victims of police brutality over a heart-pounding drumbeat.
