Ryan Gosling – who famously portrayed Ken in the Barbie movie – has released a new EP. Going teamed up with music producer Mark Ronson on Ken the EP, a mini album featuring three remixes of the Barbie song “I’m Just Ken.”
Ken the EP features the holiday remix “I’m Just Ken – Merry Kristmas Barbie,” an acoustic version “I’m Just Ken – In My Feelings Acoustic” and the dance remix “I’m Just Ken – Purple Disco Machine Remix.”
Ronson posted on Instagram that he was “starstruck” when he first met Gosling in 2022 to record the original version of “I’m Just Ken” – “Not only did he bring a broken falsetto, a hefty growl, & everything in between, he brought the emotional resonance of a great actor who’d been living in a role for the past 6 months…after that, we didn’t see each other again for 18 months but of course, I was excited to see the world fall in love with his performance & know to some small degree, our song was a part of it”
Ronson, who also produced the Barbie: The Album soundtrack, also released a music video with Gosling for the holiday version of ‘I’m Just Ken.” Check it out: here.
