Steven Universe Creator Rebecca Sugar Talks About One Of The Show’s Most Infamous Songs Stronger Than You

In an exclusive Steven Universe behind-the-scenes clip on Paste Magazine’s website, Steven Universe show creator – Rebecca Sugar talks about when she collaborated with Estelle (the voice of Garnet) for one of the show’s fan favourite songs – “Stronger Than You”, in the show, Garnet sings the song during the battle scene against Jasper in the episode “Jailbreak”. At first, Rebecca was somewhat nervous when she approached the Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter, but after a while, Estelle helped her out with the song and offered her good advice. Rebecca describes “Stronger Than You”, as a love song (referencing the relationship that makes up Garnet – Ruby and Sapphire), a fight song and a victory song “all at the same time”.

The clip will be included in the Steven Universe: The Complete First Season DVD boxset which will be released in the United States tomorrow (30th January).
