From her pompadour'd hairstyle to her concept albums that double as space operas about robots, Janelle Monaé is usually all about her artistic independence, ignoring prevailing trends and styles in favor of something much more unorthodox and, most of the time, retro. Today, though, we get a rare opportunity to see Monaé reimagine herself as a pop diva, teaming up with Jidenna for the almost Beyoncé-esque "Yoga."
Taken from Monaé's Wondaland crew's upcoming compilation album Eephus, the track is much more modern and club-ready than most of the Electric Lady's output. In case you missed it, watch Monaé and Jidenna's recent interview on Hot 97.
Me and Britney we been down in Atlanta
Call me Dirty Diana
Flexing like a Yogi, drop it down with your hands up
Do a handstand, bend it back, put your legs up
