Janelle Monae’s “Turntables” isn’t so much a song as an anthem, a call to arms wrapped in music. On Tuesday night, Monae, sporting blonde locks, stopped by The Late Show for a performance of her inspirational Oscar nominated song. Monae cut loose on a Fender Stratocaster for the rendition of “Turntables”, which she wrote for the documentary “All In: The Fight For Democracy: Starring Stacy Abrams.” The song, much like the film, is a gloves off fight against racial inequities, racism and systematic oppression. Watch the performance below.
