Janelle Monae Releases Powerful Song In Protest Of Racial Injustice (@JanelleMonae)

00-janelle-monae-650aAmerican R&B artist/activist Janelle Monae has released a powerful track called “Hell You Talmbout.” The song is both painful and powerful as it calls the names of just a few of the Black brothers and sisters who have lost their lives because of the color of their skin. Maybe in an attempt not to distract us from the purpose of the record, Janelle did not tell a story in the verses. Instead, she, along with others, simply yelled out the names of the victims.

While reading some of the feedback about the song we noticed a common concern; and that is, not enough artists are addressing these social issues via their music.
