"Turntables" is Monáe’s first song since 2019’s “That’s Enough,” for the Disney+ live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp. Like the documentary, "All In: The Fight for Democracy," Monáe’s soulful hip-hop track is a call to take advantage of your right to vote and head to the polls. Monáe sings about the tables turning in the country’s current moment: “We kickin’ out the old regime,” she raps. “Liberation, elevation, education.” Or, as she puts it elsewhere on the song, “You f**k up the kitchen, then you should do the dishes.”

Cartel Madras is a Canadian hip hop duo from Calgary, Alberta, consisting of sisters Priya "Contra" Ramesh and Bhagya "Eboshi" Ramesh. They say, " ‘WORKING’ is a queer, party track which pulls from our experiences as bad bitches in the music scene from the LGBTQ+ community. Once Jide, also a member of our collective, made us this beat we knew exactly what we wanted to do with it. This video is a love letter to the campy, colour coded Eurodance videos of the 90s.”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9zJjAL16Fs
