Feministing Jamz: “Yoga” – Janelle Monáe ft. Jidenna

Janelle Monáe is one of those artists whose equal parts visionary and fun music has me rushing to listen every time she releases a new song. The second single off of the upcoming Eephus compilation of artists from Monáe’s Wondaland Records does not disappoint — and with a line like “you can’t police me so get off my areola,” how could you possibly go wrong?

The compilation’s first single was by Jidenna, featured here on this track, and is another catchy one making its way into my regular rotation. I’m guessing you’ll be wanting to look out for the full Eephus compilation of Wondaland artists, coming out on May 6th.

Verónica Bayetti Flores has spent the last years of her life living and breathing reproductive justice. She has led national policy and movement building work on the intersections of immigrants' rights, health care access, young parenthood, and LGBTQ liberation, and has worked to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought for paid sick leave, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. In 2008 Verónica obtained her Master’s degree in the Sexuality and Health program at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. She loves cooking, making art, listening to music, and thinking about the ways art forms traditionally seen as feminine are valued and devalued. In addition to writing for Feministing, she is currently spending most of her time doing policy work to reduce the harms of LGBTQ youth of color's interactions with the police and making sure abortion care is accessible to all regardless of their income.

Verónica is a queer immigrant writer, activist, and rabble-rouser.
