Janelle Monae wraps her arms around Nate Wonder while wearing a cutout swimsuit in Cabo

They most recently collaborated on last year‘s horror film Antebellum, and are also partners at record label and production company Wondaland Arts Society.

But it would seem that Janelle Monáe’s relationship with Nate Wonder is not strictly professional, as the pair were spied loving it up on a yacht in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico earlier this week. 

The singer and actress, 35, wore a stunning black-and-white one piece cutout swimsuit, along with a fabulous multicolored head scarf in shades of blue, pink and purple.

The Hidden Figures star sat in Nate’s lap with one arm wrapped tightly around his shoulders, whispering into his ear confidentially. 

The pair also nuzzled their heads together and looked deeply into each other’s eyes, smiling.

Janelle’s bathing suit was a geometric one shouldered affair, with large cut out panels at the belly and at the back.

At one point, Monáe was seen donning a Liquid Force life jacket in order to head out onto the water on a paddle board.

She looked deep in concentration as she paddled along on the water in the sunshine, gripping the handle of the flotation vehicle.

She was also spotted hanging out by the railing of the boat, busting moves alongside a friend in an equally stunning patterned cutout bathing suit.

The Homecoming star even put one foot up on the railing as she enjoyed moving around and dancing in the sun. 

Janelle and Nate, who celebrated his 41st birthday this week, are longtime collaborators and the creative duo behind Wondaland.

The company acts as a record label, TV and film production company, brand consultancy and management firm. 

In addition to working on the music for Antebellum, Wonder has also contributed to the soundtracks of I May Destroy You, Us, and 2016‘s Best Picture Oscar-winner Moonlight, which also costarred Monáe.

And while their personal relationship has not been confirmed as romantic, the Yoga hitmaker has previously identified herself as ‘someone who has been in relationships with both men and women’.

Back in 2018, Janelle spoke to Rolling Stone and identified herself as ‘a queer black woman,’ going on to say she considers herself ‘to be a free-a** motherf***er.’
