Janelle Monáe’s Soulful New Single ‘Stronger’ Will Move You To Action

Janelle Monáe just dropped her new R&B soul song ”Stronger” on Friday (July 2). The track is set to appear in We the People, a 10-episode Netflix animated series about basic American civic rights and citizenship.

The show, produced by Barack and Michelle Obama, is set to premiere on July 4. It will include upbeat educational songs by popular artists like Monáe, H.E.R., Lin Manuel-Miranda, Adam Lambert, Bebe Rexha, Brandi Carlile, and more.

Monáe has often incorporated social justice into her music, and “Stronger” is a song about uniting to fight for justice, liberty, and equality. “Some of the friends taught me how to dream / Some of the friends taught me how to fight,” Monáe sings. “Even those times when we don’t agree / We know we all tryna save the same day / We don’t want the life without the liberty.”

Additionally, Monáe touches upon voters’ rights: “Now they cast their votes ’cause the people wanna speak / And they checking their balance ’cause the people wanna eat / What they do process ’cause they seek equality / And we pay for the world so the people in the streets / And they love America, where the people wanna be / And they all know their rights from the sea to shiny sea.”
