Janelle Monae - "What Is Love?"

Publish date:

We have to make the obvious clear right off the bat - Janelle Monae's new song "What is Love?" is not, and I repeat, NOT, a Haddaway cover. Rather, it's the song she wrote for the upcoming animated movie Rio 2, so, rightfully, it cranks up the Carnivale-ready, Caribbean feel, with plenty of massive, shuffling drums, wood percussion sounds, and group vocals backing up Monae's irresistible vocals - "What is love if it's not with you?" Get ready to teach your kids to samba. Check it out.
