Janelle Monae Is Back With A New Song Called “Float”
Superstar Janelle Monae makes her return with a brand new song titled “Float”. The song, which contains horns by Seun Kuti and Egypt 80, is released by Wondaland Arts Society/Atlantic Records.
According to sources close to Monáe, “Float” was inspired by Muhammed Ali talking shit in Zaire in 1974, Jane’s evolution, Mary Poppins’ umbrella, Aladdin’s magic carpet, Ja Morant’s flotation to the rim while dunking on his ops, Sara Elise’s ropes, excerpts from Paramahmsa Nithyananda’s talks on levitation, Raul’s toast on December 1, and Bruce Lee’s mighty philosophy on being “shapeless, formless,” and becoming one with your surroundings, to be like water…
The song will also be featured during promotions during all NBA broadcasts through mid-March. Monae’s previous studio album, “Dirty Computer,” was released in 2018.
