R&B star Janelle Moane has released a mini YouTube documentary titled A Revolution of Love. Directed by Emma Westenberg and produced in partnership with YouTube, the short film revolves around Monae's relationship with music and community.

"Music can unite, no matter what political party you're in, no matter what God you choose to serve," she says. "You can absolutely connect with somebody over a good horn line."

The documentary features special appearances from the singer's Mother, her partners at her recording label, Wonderland and longtime pal, Tessa Thomspon, among others.

"To me, love is a force that cannot be contained. One that people take for granted but when used, it has the power to change the world," she says of the power of love, which is also the central theme in her widely acclaimed 2018 album, Dirty Computer.

In the documentary, she fondly considers her Atlantan roots and how they may have shaped her music career, saying: "I think being in Atlanta, being in a place where you have a whole lot o progressive, young people like myself who are trying to create something special, create something magical, create community, create unity through art is why I feel like Atlanta helped shape me."
