Janelle Monáe – “What Is Love”

By Michael Nelson / March 4, 2014

The great Janelle Monáe — whose last album, The Electric Lady, was among our favorites of 2013 — has just released a new single, “What Is Love,” which will be featured on the Rio 2 soundtrack. It’s a pretty good place for her to feature her music, because the song is catchy as hell, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a new generation of fans discovering her here (or on Sesame Street), and staying with her for the next 30+ years. Listen.
