    Janelle Monáe x Pepsi? Yep! The singer and the soft drink giant have partnered to celebrate music and football (aka futbol aka soccer) by recreating David Bowie's iconic "Heroes" for a commercial.

    Janelle Monáe brings her unique modern R&B and urban sound to the classic Bowie cut.

    Janelle and "Heroes" are featured in Pepsi's most recent commercial which showcases their star-studded football lineup, including four-time Player of the Year -- Leo Messi. It also celebrates heroes on and off the football pitch.

    We can always get down with that.

    Football = soccer in this instance. Not American x NFL football!

    Watch the spot below.
