Singer King Princess makes a catchy song out of Meryl Streep’s scream

This is what 2019 sounds like.

It’s official: singer King Princess has won the internet.

The songstress, whose real name is Mikaela Straus, has found a way to make the otherwise lackluster second season of HBO’s Big Little Lies into something worth talking about. And all she had to do was take the screams of Meryl Streep’s character Mary Louise and turn them into a hypnotic techno track.

Take a listen below.

The song “Mary-Luiz” is supposed to be a tribute to the rage Mary Louise feels as she tries to wrestle with the fact that her son is gone. And, as Mary Luise is screaming, Nicole Kidman’s character Celeste can be heard in the sub beat saying “Mary Louise.”

It’s horrifying and blistering. Hopefully, it also has a shot at finally overtaking “Old Town Road” as the current anthem of the internet.

“This is a track very close to my heart and puss,” wrote King Princess on Twitter. “Thank you to skylar and logan for additional prod and good vibes in the studio all around. Special thanks to henry for the gik and the gak. Thank you to @ the real Meryl Streep for the feature.”

She even made her own music video to the track, in which one can hear Mary Louise’s opening verse: “We should scream, and beat our breast and tear our hair! Don’t you feel angry?”

“I don’t mean to startle you with this news, but Meryl will be coming out at lollapalooza with me. during my set.”

Well, at least something good came from this season of Big Little Lies.
