Janelle Monáe "I Want You Back" (Jackson 5 cover)
Published Sep 17, 2013On top of the fantastic, future soul originals on Janelle Monáe's recent The Electric Lady LP, a Target exclusive edition of the album includes a laidback run-through of the Jackson 5's classic "I Want You Back." In case you don't happen to have a Target nearby, you can stream the song online.
While live, Monáe has busted out the track with a full, funky backing band, the recorded version plays things more low key. Nevertheless, the spacious arrangement features lush vocal harmonies and some fluid guitar fretting.
