Fun. ft Janelle Monae - 'We Are Young'

Janelle goes for an emo duet with Fun.

It’s not clear what compelled Janelle Monáe to work with these New York-based Panic! At The Disco soundalikes. They’re hardly natural bedfellows, and her input is limited to a brief vocal. It’s a winning formula though – this stirring emo ballad went to Number One in the US. This year’s Owl City then, if that concept doesn’t chill your blood.
