Janelle Monáe Self-Examines On New Song ‘I Like That’

Janelle Monáe has freed up more storage on her Dirty Computer by releasing a new song titled “I Like That.”

Backed by stirring background vocals and a chilled production, the futurist songster takes a look at herself and casts out all doubt from her life. She ignores the simple-minded opinions of others too.

She sings, “Sometimes I’m mystery, sometimes I’m free / Depending on my mood or my attitude / Sometimes I want to roll or stay at home / Walking contradiction guess I’m factual and fiction.”

“I Like That” comes just a week after “PYNK,” an empowering anthem on self-love and pussy power. Both songs along with “Make You Feel” and “Django Jane” will appear on Dirty Computer, due April 27 via Atlantic Records.
