  • Lyrics
  • The theme song for the animated movie Hotel Transylvania 2, this was crafted by Harmomy Samuels, whose other credits include Ariana Grande's breakthrough single "The Way" and Ciara's hit tune "I Bet."
  • Samuels told Billboard magazine the track's placement in the movie was divinely inspired: "This song had been created before I even went to visit [Epic chairman/CEO] L.A. Reid," he recalled. "I'd wanted to re-create a whole different vibe, something like the '50s in 2015 but also incorporating Motown and the 808s. While visiting with L.A., it just so happened that an executive from Sony Pictures was in an office next door looking for a song for Hotel Transylvania 2. I played the song for L.A., who looked at me kind of funny and asked, what's this song called again? And I said, 'I'm In Love With a Monster.' And he said, 'You're joking.' It was like it was too easy. I think God kind of aligned it."
