Janelle Monáe and Zoë Kravitz on “Screwed”: About State of America Compared to Sex
Janelle Monáe has premiered a brand new single and music video for the new year, and it carries a sound message as well. “Screwed” released on Jan 7th, 2019, talks about some of the burning issues in The USA as well as in the world. She uses a sexual theme to highlight these social issues and Zoë Kravitz is onboard with the song.
The new single “Screwed” is featured on Janelle Monáe’s visual album ‘Dirty Computer – Emotion Picture.’ The 46-minute long visual album includes songs such as “Don’t Judge Me,” “Make Me Feel,” “Django Jane” and “Screwed.” It’s largely based around a sexual innuendo, trying to convey a positive message.
In the new “Screwed” music video, Janell and Zoe are pursued by a post-apocalyptic robotic gunner, as they seek refuge within a building. The exhilerating dance moves, witty lyrics and the gorgeous ladies are bound to keep you glued to this video.
The common themes found throughout this song are gun violence, governmental oppression, sex as an object of power, gender equality, sexual oppression and more.
