Ester Dean and Decatur rapper B.o.B. have teamed up on "Rio Rio," an upbeat tune that fittingly takes listeners to a warm place with its tropical vibe. The song is included on the soundtrack for Rio 2, which comes out tomorrow on iTunes.
An interesting note to this record is that Dean's chorus here was previously used on "Let Me Take You to Rio (Blu's Arrival)," a song featured on the soundtrack for the first movie that came out in 2011. The beat gets a definite upgrade, and B.o.B. brings a lot more energy than Dean's past collaborator Carlinhos Brown. All due respect to the celebrated Brazilian artist, though.
The Rio 2 soundtrack is streaming in full over at Billboard. The movie comes out April 11.
