Yesterday, during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, Janelle Monáe performed her rendition of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”. The Monáe version stays faithful to the original, with bubbly, romantic vocals nearly identical to our fab five of yesteryear, only there’s this laid-back, air of abandonment to the supporting string and horn work. If nothing else, it’s a vast improvement on the “Bunny Hop” song. Watch the replay below (via Pigeons and Planes).
