Charli XCX and Galantis have teamed up on a new Super Mario-inspired collaboration titled “We Are Born to Play.” The track will be the theme song for the first-ever SUPER NINTENDO WORLD theme park, set to open in Universal Studios Japan this summer.
The track incorporates classic Super Mario sounds into a glittery, upbeat production carried by songstress Charli XCX’s vocals. The pop star makes an appearance in the music video as well, overlooking the colorful festivities in a pink tulle dress as people donning signature Mario hats traverse a cinematic Super Mario world with beloved characters like Mario himself, Peach, Toad, and more.
Since releasing her long-awaited third studio album Charli, Charli XCX has alluded to more new music on the way in 2020. Galantis recently closed out 2019 with two back-to-back NYE performances at Decadence AZ and Countdown. The Swedish hitmakers are currently on their Church of Galantis tour, and are also expected to deliver their own full length LP sometime this year.
