She also said she relates most strongly to Pikachu: “I’m really attached to the hero. I know there are others in the game, but I just found Pikachu to be really cute,” she says.

“I understand the story of Pikachu. On the surface, you might just think I’m just cute, have a couple of cute songs. But if you dig deeper, you’ll realize ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ is not just a fun little song!”

“In this moment of unknown, there are dependable places and characters and institutions and people, and I hope I can be one of them. That’s what I hope for in my personal self, and even in my involvement with this collab,” she continued.

Details are still being kept under wraps, but her involvement will reportedly include a new music program with Universal Music Group. She can also be heard singing the word “Electric!” in a trailer for the 25th anniversary celebration. We can’t wait to see what she’s doing!
