Zeina's "Regina George" Is a Soulful Ode to All the Mean Girls in Your Life
"Fetch" is dead, long live "fetch."
Mean Girls is arguably the greatest, most influential screenplay to impact the minds of this generation. Montreal singer/songwriter Zeina knows this, which is why her new single "Regina George" is such a triumph. A portrait of a queen bee past her prime who "smokes away her sorrows," the song makes the most of Zeina's soulful croon and Prezident Jeff's lilting beat. It's definitely the best song about a Rachel McAdams character since Oasis' "Morning Glory."
"I started writing this song without referring to Regina George at all, it was your classic heartbreak song with a cheesy hook that went something like 'you broke me, blah blah blah,'" says Zeina. "I was about to trash the song but the beat was too fire. While I went over what I was trying to say my girl sent me a meme from Mean Girls and everything hit me like a big sack of potatoes. At that moment, I knew I had to be responsible for writing the anthem of this iconic character." Listen to "Regina George" below.
