Janelle Monáe - Screwed (feat. Zoë Kravitz)

Janelle Monáe starts off 2019 with some fun in her latest released song "Screwed" feat. Zoë Kravitz. She shows off a fun quirky side of her artistry by starting the song by singing " I live my life in a magazine, I live my life on a TV screen, I live my life on birth control, I lost my mind on rock and roll." Those lyrics scream lyrical magic.

The video starts with Monáe and friends waking up on a rooftop, then quickly running away after spotting a security bot flying in the air. The group ends up at an underground party, where they start playing instruments and dance under flashing lights.

Later, three screens show politically-charged images, including the Statue of Liberty, protests, and fires. Finally, actress Tessa Thompson is dragged off by the security officers and taken away in a hovercraft.

Monáe addresses issues shes faces about people telling her how she can express her sexuality, "Hundred men telling me cover up my areolas, while they blocking equal pay, sippin' on they Coca Colas, fake news, fake boobs, fake food what's real?" She addresses social issues that are very prevalent in today's society including, equal pay, fake news, and the popularity of looking a certain way to others.

"Screwed" tackles post-election depression, as well as the current political climate. The song appears on Monáe's album Dirty Computer, which is nominated for album of the year at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
