Since the release of her 2013 album, The Electric Lady, R&B goddess Janelle Monáe has grown to become one of the industry’s best live performers and most creative artists. And she’s not just keeping her newfound star power to herself: Monáe recently partnered with Epic Records to launch Wondaland, her own custom imprint boasting a roster of up-and-coming, likeminded musicians. In May, she and the label will release a compilation EP entitled The Eephus.
As a preview, Monáe has unveiled “Yoga”, a collaborative single with Wondaland act Jidenna. Big, booty-dropping beats and soaring hooks galore, it’s likely the catchiest number about meditation that you’ll ever hear. Perhaps Monáe ought to be called The Yoga Lady? Listen in below.
