Aqua’s ‘Barbie Girl’ will appear in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie in a Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice remix.
Ever since the Barbie teaser was released in December, many have wondered if Aqua’s 1997 hit would appear in the live-action flick.
And, despite reports saying otherwise, a snippet of the new song featuring Minaj and Ice Spice (who recently collaborated on ‘Prince Diana) is heard in the latest trailer, which dropped earlier today (May 26).
However, the tune was missing from the film’s first full-length trailer, which had fans wondering if it would be included at all.
"The most disappointing thing to me about the Barbie movie is how in the trailer they went 'hi barbie', 'hi ken' and then 'Barbie Girl' by Aqua did NOT start playing," tweeted one frustrated fan.
A second complained: "They still haven’t used Aqua’s 'Barbie Girl' in the trailer? The song better be in the movie."
A third Twitter user added: "Just saw the trailer for the new Barbie movie, and it looks awesome! The only thing that would make it better is if the song 'Barbie Girl' by Aqua somehow found its way into the movie soundtrack."
Ulrich Møller-Jørgensen, manager of Aqua lead singer Lene Nystrøm, also confirmed to Variety last year that the song wouldn’t accompany the film.
So either Aqua has had a change of heart, or he was keeping his cards extremely close to his chest.
Along with Aqua, loads of other artists have already been confirmed to appear on the film's soundtrack, including Ava Max, Charli XCX, Dominic Fike, Dua Lipa, Fifty Fifty, Gayle, Haim, Kali, Karol G, Khalid, The Kid Laroi, Lizzo, PinkPantheress, and Tame Impala.
Not to mention, there are still two unknown artists yet to be announced. Offfft, so many easter eggs planted here.
For those of you living under a rock and haven't seen the pictures of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling absolutely sweeping the internet with their matching fits, the upcoming film is directed by Gerwig, known for her work on Little Women and Lady Bird.
And, while everyone is hyped about the flick, the plot at large remains a mystery.
However, Robbie has confirmed it was one of the 'best scripts' she's ever read.
“The first time I read the ‘Barbie’ script, my reaction was, ‘Ah! This is so good. What a shame it will never see the light of day because they are never going to let us make this movie,’” Robbie told Variety.
“But they did.”
Barbie is set to break out of her box and rollerblade into theatres July 21.
