Just two weeks after performing with the Black Eyed Peas on "American Idol," will return to the Fox TV show to perform his song from the 20th Century Fox animated film, "Rio."

"Hot Wings (I Wanna Party)" is a duet between and Jamie Foxx in the film that opens Apr. 15. The song is not being released as a single, but believes the song will become "a viral baton that is, in a sense, a single."

"Nowadays, anything can get cut up and become a viral single," told during a phone interview from Rio de Janeiro, where the movie's premiere is tonight. "I'm glad to be performing on 'Idol.' That will be a single, and the scene in the film acts as a music video."

Foxx said he has spoken with and Swizz Beatz about contributing to his R&B/Hip-hop-themed animated feature, "Welcome to the Jungle." The film, announced a year ago, is still in the script stage, he says.
