In a news story that will make you doubt your sanity, singer Charli XCX and electronic duo Galantis dropped a new song… with Nintendo and the colourful cast of characters from Super Mario Bros.

Yeah.

Proving that the G is for Gaymers, the “Baby Girl” singer swung on a poll with Toad as she belted out some candy-coated vocals in a music video for the video game corporation’s Super Mario World theme park.

Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover event in history? Not anymore, Marvel.

The theme park is coming to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, and it’s opening ahead of this summer’s 2020 Olympics.

Princess Charli XCX collaborates with Galantis and Nintendo for new song. 

Launching both the park and countless gay men into insanity is Galantis and Charli’s new song “We Are Born To Play” which marries together musical talent with some retro Mario magic.

Basically, a lot of bleeps and bloops, but this song is a major bop.

It’s a little more than two minutes of Charli running around the Mushroom Kingdom in a sprawling pink tutu dress as hundreds of park-goers jump and collect coins.

Charli is hanging out with Toad with a boombox on the top of a CGI Princess Peach’s Castle, teasing what the park is set to look like.

With Mario shouting “Here we go!” the plumber has officially collaborated with a pop queen.

 

The song broke the psyches of people, as you can imagine, as they watched the fabric of reality collapse around them.

So, will Charli, an official Super Mario princess, be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Your move, Nintendo.
