Janelle Monáe rocks a synth-heavy cover of the 80’s hit “Simply Irresistible” by Robert Palmers. The power-driven Monáe keeps the lyrics intact as she puts her own unique funky spin on it for E!’s Live From the Red Carpet Oscar Awards coverage soundtrack. With the 86th Academy Awards ceremony going down last night (March 2) to glorious effects, it was a perfect way to kick things off. Monae even tweeted, “I had so much fuuuun reimagining this song for E’s #Oscars coverage #robertpalmer #simplyirresistible JAM”. Listen to Janelle Monáe’s version to “Simply Irresistible” below.
