King Princess (real name: Mikaela Straus) knew exactly what to do this summer when she hit episode three of luxurious, wealth-porn drama Big Little Lies. She knew evil yet lovable granny Mary Louise, played by a revelatory Meryl Streep's rage scream needed to me turned into a blistering techno track.
"Mary-Luiz" is King Princess' tribute to the bone-deep rage that Mary Louise feels over her abusive son's potential murder hands of five Monterey power-moms (spoiler: they did it). It's basically if you took the scene — where Nicole Kidman, Mary Louise and the boys gather around a high-anxiety dinner table — and put it in a blender. Mary Louise howls to the wolves, while Nicole's horrified cry is transformed into a sub-beat: "Mary Louise!"
"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.
Maybe you needed this today! As the queen, Mary Louise says, "We should scream, and beat our breast and tear our hair! Don't you feel angry?"
If this song wins a Grammy, will Meryl get an EGOT? Enjoy this psychotic creation, which KP even made a DIY music video for, below.
