Janelle Monáe has shared a new song titled Stronger from a new animated Netflix series about civic engagement We the People.
The 10-episode show, which was produced by Barack and Michelle Obama, debuts July 4th and centers on civic engagement. The episodes will include musicians like Monaé, H.E.R., Andra Day, Brandi Carlile, and Adam Lambert teaching viewers in song, which the singer evokes in her new track.
Even when we struggle and we get kicked down. We pick each other up with a little polish. All of my friends want a legacy. Don’t wanna be left out. Every time you think we get a little weak. We get a little bit stronger, Monaé sings.
