Get ready to hear Janelle Monáe and new artist Jidenna turn up the heat with their sexy, new single, ‘Yoga’. The flexible track allows listeners to hear another side of both artists featured. From smashing any limitations ‘Classic Man’ may have temporarily put on Jidenna, to Monáe reinventing her non-conformist ways by dosing up formula-following music, it looks like both artists are living up to Monáe’s line, “I’m too much a rebel, never do what I’m supposed to.”
Coining a new term, Monáe gives females a new way to tell people to ‘jump off’ without having to adopt the genitalia of their counterparts with her notable line, “Get off my areola.” Sensual, but not raunchy, ‘Yoga’ is already making yoga-heads proud to see the Wondaland artists shine a new light on the peaceful, but highly beneficial activity. So go ahead, work out those curves and gain some serenity with some ‘Yoga’.
