Janelle Monáe is adding a little Brazilian flavor to David Bowie’s 1977 track, “Heroes,” continuing along with her Rio state of mind. Her latest single, “What Is Love” is a tropical ode to the animated flick, Rio 2.

Her Bowie remake was in honor of Pepsi’s global 2014 futbol campaign “Now Is What You Make It,” celebrating the World Cup which is set to take place in Brazil from June 12 to July 13. The song, along with the singer herself, will appear in a 90-second clip where she’ll be traveling around the streets of Rio singing the cover.

The song is currently available to purchase on iTunes.
