Indian-American rapper Lilly Singh has just released a new single, comprised of revamped versions of Bollywood's biggest hits. And, we are here for it!
The celebrity YouTuber who goes by the nickname ‘Superwoman’ has a massive and loyal fan following.
She combined Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai, All Iz Well and Aankh Maray into raps, targeting misogyny, sexism and body-shaming. This is surely what Bollywood songs would look like if they were turned into a woke rap.
Lyrics such as "Don't need fair and lovely because I love me" and "If it ain't your body, I don't need your two cents", call out stereotypes in society as well.
Taking the songs apart, she gave them a whole new meaning and added her own sick beats while she was at it. She even threw in truth bombs about mental health and sexuality.
Basically, Superwoman spoke about everything Bollywood either gets wrong or doesn’t tell you about. The rap is also pretty relatable and we aren't alone with all the fans obsessing over her new video:
