Cartoon Network has chosen multi-award-winning Malaysian singer, Shila Amzah to be the voice behind The Powerpuff Girls new opening track titled, Who's Got the Power? in both Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin.
The song boasts a brand new sound with a punchy pop-rock tone and sassy chorus to reflect a more fun and high-energy vibe, similar to the series.
“I am so honored to be working with Cartoon Network for The Powerpuff Girls re-launch. Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles are girl-power icons, and are characters that inspired me when I was growing up. I love that the new theme song is so energetic and up-beat, which is quite different to what I normally perform. It was a thrill to try something new in the way of singing and I cannot wait to see the end product on Cartoon Network,” said Shila Amzah.
Mark Eyers, Content Head for Cartoon Network in Asia Pacific, added: “With Shila, we have found our ‘Chemical X’! She is a genuine Malaysian superstar with a bubbly, empowered personality that exactly mirrors the traits of all three girls. Shila Amzah and The Powerpuff Girls are an ideal combination and this partnership is the perfect way to reintroduce our favorite super-cute characters to viewers in Malaysia!”
