Aly and AJ Sing in Simlish
Posted on August 18, 2006
Electronic Arts announced that the music from the teen music group Aly & AJ has been translated into Simlish, the native language of the Sims. "Chemicals React," a single from Into the Rush, has been recorded in Simlish and will be made available to both music and gaming fans when The Sims 2 Pets Expansion Pack launches on October 17, 2006. Let's hope this Pets expansion is free of disease carrying hamsters! AJ and Aly said they are HUGE fans of The Sims in the press release about the translated song.
AJ said in a statement, "We are HUGE fans of The Sims, so it was really cool to be tapped to provide music for their latest project, The Sims 2 Pets. When we told EA that we could speak Simlish they were really psyched! It was fun to reinterpret our song for The Sims and ultimately, our fans!"
Aly said, "One of the things I have always liked about The Sims games is that they are very inclusive, people can play out real storylines from their lives -- like a romantic relationship that's really gotten stressful -- and there isn't a lot of judgment. We try to do the same thing with our music, give people something that they can relate to, so they think, 'I really get that, I've been through it!'"
"Chemicals React" peaked as high as #4 on MTV's TRL show. Take a look:
