Sesame Street's latest collaboration will have you dancing around your living room and singing along to the motivational tune. Janelle Monáe rocks her performance alongside the show's iconic characters and some adorable kids dressed in killer tuxedos.

Throughout the song, the pop star conveys the message that you should never give up. Just because you haven't gotten something right yet, it doesn't you should quit. It is a great message to deliver to kids and people of all ages.

"I am so excited to be living one of my dreams - to be here on Sesame Street," Monáe told Billboard. "I'm here because I am teaching everybody on Sesame Street the importance and the power of 'yet.' Never, ever, ever give up because there's so much power in 'yet.'" Janelle Monáe do a great job on the catchy tune, which you check out in the video above.
