Pass Or Play? Janelle Monae Asks “What Is Love” For New “Rio 2” Soundtrack

March 5, 2014  |  

If you happened to see the animated film Rio, then you know that the soundtrack was awesome. It featured talented folks like Ester Dean, will.i.am. and Jamie Foxx. And since the film is getting a sequel, it only makes sense that they would try to come strong again.

So they tapped “Electric Lady” Janelle Monae to participate and she contributes an uptempo, heartfelt number called “What Is Love.”

It’s a feel good number with some pretty deep lyrics.

Take a listen below. There are some moments when Monae sounds like a young MJ during his Jackson 5 days.
