Janelle Monáe Releases New Song ‘Turntables’ From the Amazon Prime Documentary ‘All In: The Fight for Democracy’
Janelle Monáe has released “Turntables” from the new Amazon Prime Video documentary about voting, All In: The Fight for Democracy.
This week, Janelle Monáe released her powerful song, “Turntables.” The song will be featured in that new documentary All In: The Fight for Democracy, which focuses on voter suppression in the United States.
The song reflects on the recent Black Lives Matter protests and the racial tensions across the country, and Janelle Monáe does a great job of expressing the pain and anger that a lot of people in the Black community are currently feeling.
Even though Janelle Monae’s anger is apparent in the lyrics, “Turntables” is actually about hope for the future, and being optimistic that change will come. Fans are loving the new song and its message, and they’re happy that the singer is using her platform to speak on important issues in our community.

“Turntables” is the perfect song for the documentary as we approach one of the most important and highly anticipated elections in US history. All In: The Fight for Democracy is directed by Liz Garbus and Lisa Cortés and will feature Democratic politician Stacey Abrams, who has been known for fighting voter suppression in her home state of Georgia.
If I could play turntables on repeat over a PA system I wouldn’t turn it off until the racists in my town packed up to go be in a boat parade somewhere.
