“As an artist who is constantly reinventing myself, I feel like I’m just getting started,” Monáe said in a statement to Billboard. “I am excited about partnering with Big Jon [Platt] and the rest of my new Sony family to help shape the future of music in the record industry as well as the fashion, TV and film space.”

“I have been chasing the opportunity to work with Janelle since the beginning of her career,” said Sony Music Publishing chairman and CEO Jon Platt in a statement. “I am very grateful to welcome her to Sony Music Publishing and I look forward to building something incredible with Janelle and the Wondaland Arts family.”


Back in September, Monáe released “Turntables,” which was featured on the All In: The Fight for Democracy, that chronicled the presidential election race in 2020.
