NEW MUSIC: JANELLE MONAE | STRONGER (FROM THE NETFLIX SERIES "WE THE PEOPLE")

Janelle Monáe has shared a new song titled “Stronger,” another new track that appears in "We the People," a new animated Netflix series about civic engagement. “Stronger” is the latest in a handful of Monáe-involved singles since her 2018 album "Dirty Computer." She contributed “Turntables” to the voter suppression documentary "All In: The Fight for Democracy" last fall, performing the song on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in March. She also put a new spin on “He’s a Tramp” for the 2019 live-action remake of "Lady and the Tramp," in addition to voicing a Pekingese named Peg in the production. In "Stronger," Monáe sings about supporting each other and standing up for people's rights. "Some of the friends taught me how to dream / Some of the friends taught me how to fight / Even those times when we don't agree / We know we all tryna save the same day / We don't the life without the liberty," she sings. "The entire project was about finding ways to talk about things that have become very partisan and not take sides," series creator Chris Nee said in an interview with The New York Times. Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama executive produced the series as part of their multi-year deal with Netflix.
