Monday Jams: “Locked Inside” by Janelle Monáe

Reborn2-476x360If you’re feeling some Monday blues and want a little jam that will pick you up, but not throw sunshine and ponies in your face, then this tune is for you. Marie, who’s getting married next year, met DJ Reborn on Friday, immediately fell hard into a girl crush, asked her to DJ her wedding, and then passed along her info to me. At which point I also  fell hard for this Chicago native, who’s now tearing up New York with her turn tables* and bad ass mentoring of NYC youth with Urban Word.

Yeah, she’s my hero.

*That’s what DJs use, right?
