Janelle Monáe Takes It To The Islands With "What Is Love"

Janelle Monáe serves up a dose of sunny Caribbean funk with her latest drop “What Is Love”, off the upcoming Rio 2 soundtrack. In a move straight out of Pharrell’s playbook, Janelle drops this anthemic island-textured ballad ahead of the animated feature’s April 11th release, giving us prime opportunity to get familiar with this funky treat. After just putting us onto her synth-swag rendition of Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistible” just yesterday, we get Monáe’s soaring vocals reigning supreme over this island funk with a bass walking for days and a bounce that recalls go-go’s stampeding rhythm. Its all gold. So go ahead and rock with the latest drop from Miss Monáe and keep your ear to the ground for more from the funky android.

    Caribbean funk? This is Samba! This is Brazilian Samba whith Janelle Monaé !!!

    Yeah it is Samba. From a part of Brazil that is not even relatively near the Caribbean. It is from the soundtrack of a movie with the name of a Brazilian city. Wake up please.

    Not an island textured anything. I guess you got too excited from the great sounds.
