Check It Out: “Hell You Talmbout”

August 17, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


From a reader:

Real quick, check out this song: “Hell You Talmbout

The Wondaland Records (Janelle’s Monae’s label with new artists) crew sang this at the protest in Philly on Wednesday, Times Square on Thursday, and then closed out a concert last night with this. Listen! Powerful and sends chills!

Janelle Monae and the Wondaland artists have all posted a statement about the song on their social media accounts:

“This song is a vessel. It carries the unbearable anguish of millions. We recorded it to channel the pain, fear, and trauma caused by the ongoing slaughter of our brothers and sisters. We recorded it to challenge the indifference, disregard, and negligence of all who remain quiet about this issue. Silence is our enemy. Sound is our weapon. They say a question lives forever until it gets the answer it deserves... Won’t you say their names?”
