Pokémon’s 25th anniversary celebration continues with the upcoming release of “Game Girl,” a new song from Island Def Jam recording artist Louane, who recorded it exclusively for the upcoming P25 Music compilation album. With its fun and infectious melody, the bilingual song describes the journey we all take through life with a friend or a partner as we figure out what’s right for us and how to be the best version of ourselves. It was written by Louane for the occasion, composed and produced by P3gase and mixed by Josh Gudwin.
The vibrant official video for “Game Girl” shows Louane surrounded by larger-than-life colours and backdrops meant to transport the viewer into her over-the-top imagination influenced by the ever-evolving world of Pokémon.
“Louane is an exciting addition to the growing roster of talented artists from around the world helping us celebrate 25 years of Pokémon,” said Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing, The Pokémon Company International. “‘Game Girl,’ with its French and English lyrics, is not only an amazing pop anthem for Pokémon Trainers, but also represents the global resonance of Pokémon with international fans.”
“Pokémon was one of my earliest childhood memories! I fell in love with Ash at first sight!” said Louane. “I didn’t hesitate at all when asked to join the P25 Music Program. It was really inspiring to have the opportunity to write a story based on what I experienced as a kid.”
Louane is the most recent artist to join the P25 Music Program alongside UK singer, Mabel, and American artists Vince Staples and Cyn—all of whom released original tracks earlier this month for Pokémon 25: The Red EP. EDM artist ZHU remixed those tracks for Pokémon 25: The Blue EP. The program also includes, Katy Perry, who contributed her original song, “Electric,” Post Malone, who put his own stamp on the Hootie & the Blowfish hit “Only Wanna Be With You” and J Balvin.
