Janelle Monaé has returned with a brand new single called “Turntables,” a politically-charged cut stemming from the Amazon Original Documentary All In: The Fight For Democracy. Given the subject matter, it’s no surprise that the song’s lyrics are highly topical to the ongoing situation in America, a country that appears more culturally divided by the day. Having been deeply impacted by what’s been transpiring, Monae opted to express herself through music, allowing her powerful voice to speak volumes.

“I’ve been experiencing a lot of trauma around seeing black bodies murdered, like humans murdered,” she explains, speaking with Zane Lowe on Apple Music. “I struggle with talking about it because it is like a wound that we’re reopening. We’ve been screaming Black Lives Matter. We’ve been understanding where our ancestors came from and the fact that I’m here not because I asked to be here, but because my ancestors were stolen and we were forced to be here.

Lyrics

[Intro]
The table about to turn
The table about to turn
The table about to turn, yeah

[Verse 1]
I’ve been flipping through my timeline
Trying to keep my mind right
My city cry-y
I got to cool down
But I’m under pressure
Look at my [?]
Look at where my fist go
I renegade when I’m in a rage
I got to cool down
But I’m under pressure

[Pre-Chorus]
I keep my hands dirty
My mind clean
Got a new agenda
With a new dream
I’m kicking out the old regime
Liberation, elevation, education
America, you a lie
But the whole world ’bout to testify
I said, the whole world ’bout to testify
And the tables ’bout to
T-t-tables ’bout to

[Chorus]
Turn turn turn (Turn)
And no stop until it
Turn, turn, turn (Turn)
No stoppin’ ’till
Turn, turn, turn (Turn)
We can’t wait for it
Turn, turn, turn
Yeah, the tables ’bout to turn
Turn, turn, turn

[Verse 2]
It’s a boomerang booming back, yeah
You laid the egg now it’s ’bout to hatch, yeah
You gaslight, ’bout to meet your match
You fuck up the kitchen, then you should do the dishes
Burning down plantations
Ain’t no parking, I don’t need no validation
I like sage when I’m in a rage
I don’t need permission, I got my intuition

[Pre-Chorus]
Hands dirty, mind clean
A different vision
With a new dream
We kicking out the old regime
Liberation, elevation, education
I said “America, yousa lie”
But the whole world ’bout to testify
I said the whole world ’bout to testify
We gonna watch the table
Now we gonna watch the table

[Chorus]
Turn, turn, turn (The tables got to)
That’s right
Turn, turn, turn (It’s got to)
You waited too long, you gotta
Turn, just turn, turn (The tables got to)
We see it all now
Turn, turn, turn
I said the tables got to turn

[Outro]
The tables turn
The tables turn
The tables turn
The tables turn (The tables got to)
The tables turn
The tables turn (The tables got to)
The tables turn
The tables turn (The tables got to turn)
