Published Aug 09, 2016Just ahead of the launch of Netflix's new The Get Down series, a song that Janelle Monáe contributed to the show's soundtrack has made its premiere. Featuring a sample from an old Jackson 5 song, her track is called "Hum Along & Dance (Gotta Get Down)."
The new tune was premiered today (August 9) through Ebro Darden's Beats 1 program, following an interview between the host and Monáe. There, the singer described how she and producers collaborated on the piece, which samples elements of vintage Jackson 5 number "Hum Along and Dance."
"I just basically put Janelle Monáe on it, but I wanted to keep the essence of Jackson 5," she explained to Ebro, adding, "Michael was one of my heroes."

As previously reported, six episodes of Baz Luhrmann's The Get Down premiere on August 12. The show had recently been teased via a stream of Miguel's "Cadillac."
