VIDEO: 'Yoga' by Janelle Monae ft. Jidenna
It this track doesn't encourage you to take up yoga as a practice just so that you too can flex it like Ms. Monae and Britanny in the club... then press play... again and let the fun and 'trappy' beat of the song make you twerk...like a yogi! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OkB6p_FZAw
As expected from the talented Ms. Monae, the lyrics of the song are empowering...yes empowering! Empowering to women who dance like 'yogis' for pleasure, as a sport or who do it to get money. With the media and society constantly policing the ways in which black women consensually choose to use their bodies, we are encouraged by Ms. Monae to tell 'em to 'get off our [my] areolas'.
Let yo booty do that yoga!
