The Mother of Dragons is talented, y’all. Not only is she the Queen of Mereen, The Unburnt, The Breaker of Chains, and all that five or more titles, she can also translate 90s hit songs into Dothraki. Like, in real life.
Emilia Clarke, the actor who plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, recently paid a visit to the Late Night with Seth Meyers show, where she talked about the process of learning the show’s script in the fictional language. Although, it may not even be entirely correct to call the Dothraki language “fictional,” as Clarke explains it herself that it’s a real, complete language created by linguist David Peterson for the Grammy award-winning show. “You can study it,” the actress points out. (Yes, there are books you can study on!)
But after six seasons of the show, how well do you think Emilia Clarke now knows the language? Very well, it seems. And if you don’t believe it, just watch her sing (well, kind of) the 90s hit song “Mmmbop” by the band Hanson.

We love you even more now, Khaleesi.
