Meryl Streep Raps About Michelle Obama in Original Song for 'The Prom' Movie - Listen Now!

Meryl Streep is once again getting serious Oscar buzz for her performance in the movie musical The Prom and one of her songs from the film has been released online!

The three-time Oscar-winning actress performs the original song “Wear Your Crown” alongside her many co-stars and she raps in the track!

“Gotta wear your crown or your tiara/Now is the time to bust out the mascara/Who needs shade, there’s nothing dullah,” Meryl raps. “We’re living life in full technicolour/But if your sparkle starts to fade/Go out and start your own parade/And if somebody starts in with new drama/Just go high like Michelle Obama.”

The song was written during post-production because director Ryan Murphy decided the movie needed to “end on a high,” co-songwriter Adam Anders told USA Today.

Adam said they wrote a female-empowerment pop/Broadway hybrid “that would encompass all of the emotions of the film, but wrap it all in an uptempo banger you can dance to. Of course, we had to do this all during COVID, so it all had to happen via Zoom sessions as we were locked down.”

The Prom will premiere on Netflix on December 11!

'The Prom' Gets First Trailer Featuring Star-Studded Cast - Watch Now!

The first trailer for Ryan Murphy‘s The Prom is finally here!

The star-studded cast for the film includes Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Key, Kerry Washington, Ariana DeBose, and newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman.

Here is the synopsis: Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (Corden) are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Key), the head of the PTA (Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (DeBose).

When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie (Kidman) and Trent (Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.

The Prom will be released on Netflix on December 11!
