I Got the Juice

Album: Dirty Computer (2018)
  • This song features Pharrell Williams on vocals. Williams served as a producer on the movie Hidden Figures, which co-starred Janelle Monáe, and also co-ordinated its soundtrack. Monáe recalled their collaboration to Billboard:

    "Pharrell Williams has been a musical hero to me for a very long time and we collaborated on the Hidden Figures soundtrack. He was one of the producers on the film and I was in the middle of writing Dirty Computer. I saw that he was trying to tell the story of these three black women that nobody knew helped get our first astronaut into space. Talking to him, I felt like he was a great ally for women, and black women in particular. When he heard what my album was going to be about he said, 'Let me know what I can do.; I called him for 'I Got the Juice' so he could show his presence as an ally to women. I think it's important that men and women work together to uplift women and fight for women's rights, which are human rights."
