The musician voices Peg the Pekingese in the new live-action adaptation of "Lady and the Tramp," which is currently available on the newly launched Disney+ streaming service.
The Charlie Bean-directed remake arrived along with the accompanying soundtrack, in which Monáe's swingy cover of Peggy Lee's "He's a Tramp" appears.
"So much fun bringing Peg to life. Getting to watch 'Lady and the Tramp' as a kid and to still be a kid is awesome. Getting to reimagine the classic 'He's a Tramp' sung by the Peggy Lee ... was the sweetest. And my mama is singing on 'He's a Tramp' as one of the dogs," the award-winning vocalist revealed in a statement.
In addition to "He's a Tramp," Monáe wrote an original song for the live-action movie, entitled "That's Enough."
She also collaborated with Wondaland's Nate "Rocket" Wonder and Roman GianArthur in "What a Shame," which replaces "The Siamese Cat Song" that appeared in the original 1955 animated film.
As Variety pointed out, the song originally performed by Peggy Lee for the feline duo Si and Am has been removed from the Disney reboot for its controversial depiction of Asian culture.
"Lady and the Tramp" is not the only movie in which Monáe appears this year.
The musician starred alongside Cynthia Erivo in the recently released biopic, "Harriet," about slave-turned-abolitionist Harriet Tubman.
Monáe is also slated to portray the feminist scholar and child-welfare advocate Dorothy Pitman Hughes in the upcoming biopic about Gloria Steinem, entitled "The Glorias: A Life On The Road."
The film, directed by Julie Taymor, will also feature Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander and Bette Midler.
