Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel | Django Jane

It’s a double dose of sonic saturnalia and reflective realness to round out the week as Janelle Monáe drops a duo of thought-provokers. First previews of her upcoming third studio album Dirty Computer [out April 27], the 80’s drenched “Make Me Feel” and soul-flow “Django Jane” tackle ideas of sexual receptiveness and female empowerment respectively in the qualified tone you’d come to expect from the world class artist.

With visuals that mock the ongoing speculation surrounding her sexuality, “Make Me Feel” is a cheeky throwback full of reverberating synths and funky licks. Whereas her second serving “Django Jane” celebrates black women through an enlivening rhyme session and a video that serves to sanction her sway.

That juxtaposition of fun and frankness is hopefully an indication of the caliber Dirty Computer offers. Stream the two singles below and then cop your own:
