Janelle Monae Is A Flexing, Levitating Goddess In Her ‘Yoga’ Video


Be sad: Janelle Monae had a “Yoga” party, and you weren’t invited.

In the new visuals for the Wondaland Records CEO’s flex-inspired single, Ms. Monae is on one. From a house party, to the yoga studio to the tables of a diner, the singer works out her swag from beginning to end in the life-inducing four-minute clip.

Starting with a classic, dancing-in-the-mirror, “no boys allowed” session with her girlfriends, Janelle is part-serene, part-turn up as she transitions from levitating into a funky living room dance break. With a crown adorning her head, the video gets a bit more literal as the singer heads to the yoga studio. Backed by a troupe of bendable ladies, she gets her bounce on while mouthing bossy lyrics like “You cannot police me, so get off my areola.”

The video is topped off with an appearance by Janelle Monae’s Wondaland signee, Jidenna, who lends a verse to the track at a candlelit diner table before the party comes full circle with a mob of flexing, swaying dancers.

“Yoga” appears on Wondaland’s upcoming Eephus compilation EP. Watch Janelle Monae and Jidenna turn yoga into a lituation in the video above.
