Janelle Monae Drops Her Single From 'The Get Down' Sdtk "Hum Along & Dance (Gotta Get Down)"
As amazing as the trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Netflix series The Get Down looked, you knew they weren’t about to slack on that soundtrack (I mean Nas and Grandmaster Flash did produce it after all). We already heard Miguel’s contribution, and now we get a listen to the contribution from one of his contemporaries, Janelle Monae.
Earlier today, Monae paid a visit to (well, called in) Ebro Darden’s Beats 1 show with some new music in tow. After a an interview discussing the film and some of Monae’s current acting roles, we get a sample of her new song “Hum Along & Dance (Gotta Get Down).” You can hear the full version when The Get Down soundtrack drops on August 12th (the same day the show streams on Netflix).
