Janelle Monae Shares Powerful ‘Turntables’ Video for ‘All In: The Fight for Democracy’ Film

Janelle Monae knows “the table ’bout to turn.”

That’s the message in her empowering new music video for “Turntables,” in tandem with Amazon Studios’ #AllInForVoting bipartisan campaign to inspire viewership for their Stacey Abrams-backed film, All In: The Fight for Democracy.

The video shows the devastating footage of racial oppression and police brutality in protests for justice, before it transforms into an emotional display of Black strength, excellence and achievement. “We kicking out the old regime / Liberation, elevation, education / I said ‘America, yousa lie’ / But the whole world ’bout to testify,” Janelle proclaims in the heartfelt lyrics.

The song, featured in the film, is part of Amazon Studios’ larger campaign to inspire voter turnout during the 2020 presidential election season.
